GLODEM Center of Koc University

Welcome to the Center for Research on Globalization, Peace, and Democratic Governance (GLODEM). GLODEM is an academic and policy-oriented research center based at Koc University, Istanbul.

The purpose of GLODEM is to analyze dynamics of domestic and international economic and political interactions relevant to its three areas of expertise: globalization and political economy; peace and conflict resolution; and democratic governance. These dynamics include international finance and investment; new and ongoing conflicts; and evolving contexts of governance in established, emerging, and eroding democracies.

GLODEM engages academia, public agencies, private entities, and civil society organizations relevant to its areas of expertise. This engagement enables GLODEM to support meaningful, relevant research and analysis. This engagement also positions GLODEM as a central source of information and recommendations.
