This conference which host different discussions regarding the subject of national, international security and global governance every year; will be centred in Istanbul. Considering the fact that Istanbul is a source of inspiration in terms of understanding the newly shaping world, with its historical and present references, its intellectual accumulation regarding the subject and it's experience with the East and West; this conference aims to positively contribute Turkey adopting the role of being a global source of wisdom.

Soft and hard power, new sectoral diplomacy and security channels, the construction of power and justice, the new nature of state, rising powers and changing international system shaped by the rivalry parameters of “micro-nationalism, integration, unpredictability”  will be the subjects of discussion at the forthcoming future conferences. 

TASAM ( Turkish Asian Center for Strategic Studies ) and  Marmara University are delighted to  announce the Istanbul Security Conference  on the theme of “UN at 70 and the Global Governance” which will be held in Istanbul on 03-05 December 2015. The conference will be composed of several panels on the subject as well as international workshops on selected titles.  With such a perspective, we invite scholars, experts, policy makers, activists and scholars to participate in panels and meetings in order to reassess and rethink of the UN under the light of the past and of current global/ regional challenges.
