About

CEFTUS is an independent and non-partisan organisation based in London. Our mission is to build bridges between the UK and Turkey and the region.

CEFTUS was inaugurated with the support of former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg in April 2011. CEFTUS receives cross-party and cross-community support in the UK and Turkey and does not owe any allegiance to any government, political party or institution.

CEFTUS provides an open forum promoting expert opinions and debates focusing on Turkey-UK relations, foreign affairs, economic issues and social developments in Turkey and the region. We host experts, leading politicians, academics and opinion-formers from Britain, Turkey and beyond and organise monthly speaker series, panel discussions and dinner events at UK Parliament, think tanks, academic institutions and locations in the City of London.

CEFTUS conducts research into the changing political, social and business landscape of Turkey and its region, providing insights into Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. We produce regular briefings and analyses for a range of audiences on a variety of thematic areas.
