Abdulhamid II on the 90th Anniversary of His Death

17 October 2008 Salon: ZEYREK SALONU

The Center for Turkish Studies organized a symposium on “Abdulhamid II on the 90thAnniversary of His Death,” on October 18-19, 2008.  This special program, in which only invited academics participated, focused on many issues surrounding Sultan Abdulhamid and his period, ranging from central and local administrations under his rule to his domestic and foreign policy, from financial and economic policies to education and opposition, and from the Caliphate question to the religion-state relationship. The participants had the opportunity to discuss both basic perspectives on these issues and problematic areas in this period.
