Our Objective

  The Institute of Social Theory and Dynamics (ISTAD) is a non-profit academic organization that performs theoretical and empirical studies and research on the structure and dynamics of change in modern societies.

    Research and studies are conducted by utilizing sociological theories and methodologies on comparative analysis and studies on an international scale.

    It aims to present its accomplishments in the form of papers and reports to the local and international academic society, the general public and also to the people with whom we have created meaningful academic and human relationships during the course of research and studies.

  The ultimate value underlying our studies is humanistic critical thinking which analyzes the rapidly changing societies in order to create scientific knowledge that may help minimize or avoid social dilemma born out of change.
