DAKAM, Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center, was established in 2010 as a network of scholars from different disciplines with a mission to become a forum where researchers and experts from all over the world could meet in Istanbul and exchange ideas and discuss the future of their field. We form our principles on the basis of a critical perspective, an interdisciplinary approach and social responsibility.
As an independent academic platform, our tasks are to share, publicize and support the academic research in our region. To strengthen the ties between science and society, scientific information has to be delivered freely any limitation. DAKAM aims to create a platform to link different cities in the world, to bring together academy and sector experts and to connect different fields.
