Intercultural Trips to Turkey - 2014
Every year, the Atlantic Institute organizes multiple trips to Turkey to facilitate intercultural understanding and to build bridges between the US and Turkey. Turkey is a land immersed in history and culture. Since the days of the Ottoman Empire, Istanbul has been a perfect example of how Muslims, Christians, and Jews could live in peace and harmony. The trip aims to show community and church leaders, academics and businesspeople from different backgrounds the beauty of Turkey, to expose them to the Turkish culture and history, and to give them the opportunity to have firsthand analysis of the unique relationship between religion and politics in Turkey as well as the educational and academic exchange opportunities between the two countries.
The Atlantic Institute aims to provide an effective overview of the culture, educational system and civil society through these excursions. With such a broad array of visits, every participant gains an understanding of government affairs, economic development, the media, religious and cultural diversity, and daily life of Turkey.
