Divided into three main lines – Geopolitical and Geostrategic Relations in Middle East, Turkey and the Turkish-speaking World and Post-Soviet Space – the research group studying Middle East and Central Asia seeks to analyse regional dynamics established in this geographical area. By means of a multidisciplinary research, this group analyses the regional situation, outlining prospective scenarios defined by the development of international relations itself.
