The foundation for political, economic and social research (SETA).
The Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research (SETA) is a non-partisan and non-profit research institute dedicated to innovative studies on national, regional, and international issues. The objective of SETA is to produce up-to-date and accurate knowledge and analyses in the fields of politics, economy and society and to inform policy makers and the public on changing political, economic, social and cultural conditions. SETA evaluates national and international issues in an historical and cultural context. The aim of SETA is not only to analyze the current situation but also challenge conventional thinking and make rational projections.
As a research and policy recommending institution, SETA provides a forum for international dialog to bring different views together with international scholarly standards, and contributes to the formation of establishing a common ground. Through research reports, publications, brain storming meetings, conferences and policy recommendations, SETA seeks to guide leaders in government, civil society and business contribute to the informed decision making mechanisms in Turkey. SETA's mission is to foster collaborative and interdisciplinary research, enrich the strategic debate and to provide decision-makers both in the public and private sectors with authoritative and independent information, analysis and proposals for action.
SETA conducts research projects on current political, economic and social issues with a view towards providing policy recommendations. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, SETA takes into account the growing interdependence of political, economic and sociocultural issues at the national, regional and international levels and seeks to generate knowledge conducive to a social vision based peace, justice, equality, and the rule of law.
The Director General of SETA is Dr. Ibrahim Kalin.
