 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The Center For Black Sea and Central Asia (KORA) is a research center of Middle East Technical University (METU).
KORA was established in 1992 and has become a leading research institute conducting research on Caucasian,
Central Asian, East and Central European countries. KORA’s research projects are initiated and conducted by its
highly qualified staff who has a wide regional expertise and intensive fieldwork experience. Most of our research
projects reflect a comparative perspective where academics from different departments in social sciences such as
sociology, political science, international relations, economics and management, education and natural sciences.
As a result, significant number of research briefs, project reports and monographs as well as masters and doctoral
dissertations are produced on a wide range of topics including post-Soviet transition, democratization, political
parties, gender, human trafficking, border cooperation, migration.

KORA has worked in close collaboration with many national and international organisations such as EU, British
Council, UNDP, UNESCO, NATO, British Petroleum and Rio Tinto. The Center has been involved in 5 EU projects
and played the first coordinatorship in the field of social sciences in Turkey.

The Centers research projects are also funded by Middle East Technical University. Since 1996, KORA conducts at
least two comparative research projects as well as case-studies each year within the framework of METU’s
Scientific Research Programme. The Center conducted numerous research projects on Albania, Azerbaijan,
Bulgaria, Crimea, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Russia, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
All of our research projects are based on long-term fieldworks in the region.

KORA initiated the establishment of two interdisciplinary post-graduate programmes, Eurasian Studies and Area
Studies under the Graduate School of our university.

KORA has also had major experience in the organization of national and international conferences. In the last four
years, the Center organised three international conferences and hosted around 100 academics from regional and
international academic institutions.
