SSPRC, which has staff specialized in international relations, political science, international law, sociology, media and communication, to carry out these activities in an interactive manner for political structuring within institutions and organizations of civil society.
In this framework, besides archiving and reporting activities that can be used by society and policy makers in the subjects that are important in social and strategic policy making and analysis processes, activities such as panels, conferences and workshops are organized in order to increase the level of knowledge, experience and consciousness of society and policy producers.
In addition, SSPRC develops its competence to provide researchers who may be needed according to interdisciplinary project subjects with the network of academics.
The Center also expands its institutional and multilateral relations network, which is important to ensure institutional cooperation, with multinational or multi-institution research projects.
In this framework, while continuing to have an institutional relationship with the area's and the world's leading research centers, it continues to make significant strides in implementing joint project studies and research exchange programs.
