The World Economy and International Affairs faculty is a research and education centre focusing on the global economy, international relations, and oriental studies. Taking an interdisciplinary approach to the subjects allows the Faculty to reflect their real-life interdependence. Economists receive basic understanding of international relations, culture, and people's value systems. International Relations specialists benefit from an introduction to economics and applied mathematics. Both groups graduate from the BA course with a good grasp of two foreign languages. Asian Studies students not only study the languages and cultures of Asia, but also the economics, politics and entrepreneurial culture of the region.

The topic of the program was the ongoing conflict in Syria’s Idlib province and the resulting humanitarian crisis which threatens to further destabilize Turkey and the broader region. Professor Krickovic helped to shed light on Russia’s Syria policy, arguing that Russia’s endgame in Syria is not to assure a complete victory by the Assad regime. Rather, Russia’s goal is to bring a stabile and peace to Syria that will reconcile all non-radical Islamist political forces in the country, thereby legitimating its military intervention in the country and demonstrating to the world community that it can play a positive role in ending internecine conflicts in the Middle East and beyond -- something that the US has been unable to do through its own military interventions. In doing so Russia is hoping to boost its international status and maintain its role as a major player in world politics.
