"I have had the honor to be a professor in the Hacettepe Peace & Conflict Studies program, and can testify to the high quality of the participants, of the program in general, and the staff. The basic formula of working with one resource person for a week rather than changing every hour facilitates a much deeper contact between the professors and participants"

Prof. Dr. Johan Galtung
The "Father of Peace Studies"
