LSE European Institute public lecture

Turkey's Economy and the Global Economic Crisis

Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy Ali Babacan will discuss the impact of the global economic crisis and Turkey's policy response.

Ali Babacan is Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy, a position he has held since May 2009. Prior to this he served as Turkish Foreign Minister from 2007-2009. He has been a member of parliament since 2002, serving as Minister of the Economy from 2002-2007, and was also appointed chief negotiator in Turkey's accession talks with the European Union in 2005. He is a graduate of the Kellogg School of Business at Northwestern University in the USA.

LSE's Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies was announced in October 2005 by the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan on a visit to the School. The Chair is based in the European Institute and is the first of its kind in Europe. Its focus on political economy and contemporary issues is unprecedented in this context. Moreover, no other European university has endowed chairs in the social sciences on both Greece and Turkey. The current holder of the Chair is Professor Sevket Pamuk.
