GMF’s Ankara office opened in 2005 at a time when Turkey began playing an increasingly critical role in the region, in Europe, and in the transatlantic alliance. The office aims to support strong civil society in Turkey and its neighboring countries and create a forum where Americans, Europeans, and Turks can learn from one another and address shared challenges.

GMF’s expansion into Turkey reflects the call to address policy challenges along Europe’s borders, including the Balkans, the Black Sea region, and the Middle East. Located in Turkey’s capital, the office develops policy programs, fellowships, and grantmaking activities that encourage more active and prominent Turkish participation in the transatlantic community.
