In collaboration with members of the Istanbul Bilgi University "Radicalisation Field of Excellence" and the European Institute, the PRIME Youth team organized a conference for researchers and students interested in youth studies. The conference aimed to discuss the concepts, theories, and methods at the intersection of several fields, including political science, sociology, psychology, economics, social-cultural anthropology, media studies, and information technologies. Addressing the recent national and international public debates, we aimed to make an inclusive discussion about Turkey's social and political trends.

The opening speeches were made by the PRIME Youth principal investigator Professor Ayhan Kaya, the PRIME Youth postdoctoral researcher Dr. Metin Koca, and the European Institute members Dr. Deniz Güneş Yardımcı and Associate Professor Özge Onursal Beşgül. The full-day event has been followed by seven panels, with 27 panelists and nearly 50 participants from various academic and civil society organizations.
