The IAFFE in ISTANBUL - 2000 Conference aims to bring together new and innovative insights from various disciplines to contribute to the development of feminist approaches to economics. It will promote the breakdown of traditional disciplinary barriers in order to understand the economic interrelations and structures that constitute and change the lives of men and women.

We hope that the conference will provide an excellent opportunity to present, share and discuss new insights with colleagues within and beyond the economic discipline and with activists and policy makers from all over the world.

Istanbul, the country's commercial and cultural center and metropolis with a population over 10 million creates over 20% of the nation's gross output. The former capital of two empires, the city has inherited a rich and unique collection of Byzantine and Ottoman masterpieces of art and architecture, as well as a beautiful natural setting to offer inhabitants and visitors alike.

Robert College, founded in Istanbul by Dr. Cyrus Hamlin and Mr. Christopher Rheinlander Robert in 1863, was the first American institution of higher learning outside the United States. In 1971, after over hundred years of superior service to the nation and to the academic community at large, its Board of Trustees turned over Robert College to the Turkish Government. Thus, Bogaziçi University, the official successor to Robert College, was inaugurated on the same campus in 1971.

Bogaziçi University is situated on a hill on the European side of the Bosphorus after which it is named. It overlooks the Rumeli fortress built in 1452 and the two new suspension bridges connecting the European and the Asian (Anatolian) parts of the city. Because of the University's unique setting it enjoys a peaceful and magnificent view over the Bosphorus, but is within easy reach (a 30-minute drive) of the cultural facilities of the city center. The ancient buildings, renovated within the last few years, and the carefully preserved surrounding woodlands add distinction to this most attractive university campus.
