Ali Hakan Altinay

Senior Fellow
Brookings Institution

There are very few forums where a diverse group can engage in thorny global issues in true fellowship.

As the President of the Global Civics Academy, Hakan works on issues of normative frameworks for an interdependent world. His book, Global Civics, was published in 2011 by the Brookings Institution Press and reflects work conducted when he was a Yale World Fellow in 2009. The book has been translated into Arabic, Chinese, Portugese, Russian, and Spanish. Jian Yi, a 2009 Yale World Fellow, directed a documentary on the same theme, which was viewed in 110 countries. Hakan has also established the European School of Politics and the Open Society Foundation in Istanbul.
