The main aim of the project is to raise awareness about the contribution of the EU as a global actor to social policy making in Turkey.

In order to achieve the objectives of the project, it is aimed to organize courses where students will have the opportunity to choose the European Union Module courses focusing on changing social policies in Europe, contemporary challenges, risks to European social policies and population. The results of the courses will be combined with seminars, workshops held throughout the project and student seminars at the end of each term, where students can present their research papers. The aim of the workshops is to bring together university students, academics, policy makers and experts to foster constructive discussions on social policies in Europe.
