The Özyeğin Forum on Modern Turkey was established in 2015 at the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies through a gift by the family of Hüsnü Özyeğin, a leading Turkish entrepreneur and philanthropist. The Özyeğin Forum provides a platform for the study of Turkey and its relationship with Europe. It consists of two components:
- the Hüsnü Özyeğin Annual Lecture, a high-profile public event.
- the Özyeğin Speaker Series, which supports the inclusion of themes related to Turkey in seminars and workshops at CES throughout the academic year.
