About Us

What is Turkeyen/Tain Talks?

Turkeyen Talks/Tain Talks are intended to be bi-monthly thought fora with the following three aims; to:

  • Facilitate informed and respectful discourse on matters of public interest that have significant national, regional or international implications;

  • Enable the university to serve as a public intellectual broker, allowing the academic, civic, business, diplomatic, and other communities to listen to and learn from each other;

  • Offer meaningful evidence-based and policy-relevant engagement between UG students, lecturers, researchers, and alumni, on the one hand, and the public and private sectors and the international community, on the other.
