The Center for Political, Economic and Social Research (PESA) founded in Sakarya in 2012 aims to become a bridge between academia and society as a whole. PESA believes that societies would be better off if the research studies with implications regarding every aspect of societal life are disseminated adequately.
To this end, PESA publishes not only peer-reviewed academic journals but also pieces that people outside academic world would benefit from such as PESA Perspective, PESA Report, PESA Analysis, and PESA Weekly Economic Bulletin. PESA also organizes conferences, seminars, training courses, and workshops that target specific topics and groups. All publications can be reached online and free of charge.
