"ASBÜ'nün vizyonu dünyadaki araştırma üniversiteleri arasında, sosyal bilimler araştırmaları alanında etkin bir konuma gelmektir."
Mission and Vision
Originally the program was established in 2012 by Professor Dr. Havva Kök Arslan at Hacettepe University in Ankara. Since then the program has continued to grow and expand with increasing needs and demands for such a program in this region. Recently the program transferred to ASBU to a newly founded state university developed as the first and only university in Turkey to focus on social science research and social innovation.
Our program aims to provide the best-quality education for anyone aspiring to understand peace and conflict and become an active peacebuilder.
With the view that violence is born from ignorance, we believe education and understanding is essential to sustain a peaceful and just world. We strive for intellectual independency from hegemonic conflict and peace discourse.
