The institute releases a regular bulletin called Belleten.[1]

Presidents

The institution's first president was Tevfik Bıyıklıoğlu.[2]

Its most recent president was Yusuf Halaçoğlu, who was dismissed on July 2008.[3] It is speculated that the decision reflects the government's desire for rapprochement with Armenia. Shortly before the decision, foreign minister Ali Babacan greeted Armen Martirosyan, Armenia's ambassador to the United Nations, in a reception related to Turkey's temporary accession the UN Security Council.[4] Before that, president Serzh Sargsyan had invited his Turkish counterpart, Abdullah Gül, to a World Cup qualifying game between the two countries' national soccer teams.

Halaçoğlu's successor, Ali Birinci, was instated in August 2008.[5][6]
