Who are we?


The organization was founded and started its activities on 22 December 1994 in Istanbul.

TGTV is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, carrying out several activities that aim to contribute to the cultural, economical and social   development of Turkey.

To ensure these goals

TGTV publishes books and translates works that cast light upon the socio-political situation as well as files, reports and periodicals about current events of Turkey.
Within different periods, TGTV undertakes various enlightening and informative conferences, seminars and similar organizations on socio-economic and strategic structure of Turkey for concerned and distinguished people.

One of the main projects of the foundation is to collect documents from Ottoman archives in Turkey in preparation for a book on NGOs history in order to cast light upon the existence of the civil society initiative in our society’s traditions. In the process of collecting those manuscripts, they will be transcribed to be ready for the use of academic research members.

Furthermore, TGTV Foundation has an internet website on which it gives information about important events to its member organizations and broadcasts news in Turkish, English at, and Arabic in near future.
