The Center has placed a special focus on gender issues through a collaboration with the Center for the Study of Social Difference on its flagship global initiative, Women Creating Change and the Women Mobilizing Memory working group at Columbia. Through a series of programs and events, the Istanbul Center brought together a diverse network of scholars, students, practitioners, and socially engaged artists to address the global issues affecting women and explore how women can create change in their own societies.
