Would you like to become a member of CEFTUS or donate?
We provide a voice for the entire Turkish-speaking community in the UK at a governmental level, and we have helped raise the profile and improve the perception of the community. We foster lively debate around issues affecting Turkey and the diaspora, challenging preconceptions.
Our regular events in the Houses of Parliament allow us to create ties with politicians and raise the profile of the community. As a CEFTUS member, you will be tapped into a network of expertise. We arrange for the views of our members to directly reach influential Members of Parliament. We hold special, smaller intimate meetings involving MPs interested in Turkish/Kurdish/Cypriot communities and related issues, as well as with our speakers, for our members. These allow for far more direct access. This sort of access would allow you to gain invaluable insight in relaxed, informal settings.
Alongside our large public forums, we hold regular smaller, more intimate events, breakfasts or roundtables with prominent experts, for our members.
We regularly produce briefings and news digests on current events in Turkey, and hold in-depth round table discussions. As a CEFTUS member you would have exclusive access to our work, events, and you would have a special place in our publications. Take a look at here to view our briefings, reports and analyses.
Click here to see our 5th annual magazine from last year, which marked our five year anniversary with a round-up of our work up to that point. Please take a look at our 2015 magazine and 2014 magazine as well.
As an independently-funded organisation, we are able to bring together people from all sides of the community and political spectrum, allowing us to advance our interests as one. However, this means that we receive no government funding and, as such, we need your support, either by becoming a member or through making a regular donation. To be able to bring together speakers such as journalists, academics and politicians from Turkey, we have to cover a variety of costs, such as flights, hotels and visas. We have so far hosted high profile politicians from the AK Party, the CHP and the HDP and experts not only from Turkey, but also from Europe and the US.
Please take a look at here to see options of CEFTUS Membership and Subscription as a guide. As requirements and interests of each member individual and organisation would differ, we would tailor your membership accordingly. We would love to discuss with you soon what you would be interested in and how we can meet your requirements.
