Closing Ceremony – 6th IIIT Turkey Summer School
The Closing Ceremony of the Sixth IIIT Turkey Summer School officially took place at Demirkoy Farm on 20 July 2019 attended by members of the host family.
The Ceremony marked the closure of a ten day Summer School scheduled from 11-20 July, drawing international and local speakers, and postgraduate students from Turkey and nine other countries. The Closing Remarks by speakers and participants focused on the lively and intelligent debates that took place during the ten days. This was followed by two participants speaking on behalf of all attendees summarising their perspectives and giving thanks to the IIIT and host family. Finally, following a collective breakfast, the awarding of formal Certificates of Completion to each participant took place. All participants were extremely happy to have taken part and sad to leave the stimulating environment, the people they had met and the new friendships they had formed. All promised to keep in touch with each other and the IIIT and MAHYA.
