The VIADUCT project has awarded Dr. Ebru Turhan (Turkish-German University, Istanbul) with the VIADUCT Teaching Award for her Jean Monnet Module INSISTER “Inside the EU-Turkey Relations (2016-2019)”. VIADUCT’s Steering Group has decided to award Ebru Turhan for her outstanding teaching performance and thus contribution to the future of EU-Turkey relations.
Dr. Julie Smith (Cambridge University) held the laudatory speech for Ebru Turhan in the framework of the VIADUCT Award Ceremony on 23 October 2020. She stressed not only the module’s contribution to the research and teaching agenda, but also its bridge function between junior and senior academics. References from her students are outstanding. Being the first module on EU-Turkey relations at a rather young university, senior scholars underlined Ebru Turhan’s effort to put the EU (back) on the Turkish academic map.
