Dr. Semih Vaner

Nationality: Turkish

Semih Vaner (July 26, l945, Istanbul - February, 18, 2008, Paris) Turkish citizen. Married, three children. Fluent in Turkish, French, English Semih Vaner is the Research Director of the Center of International Studies and Research of Paris and he is also the director of the Cahiers d'études sur la Méditerranée orientale et le monde turco-iranien (CEMOTI). "The research director of this institution, he has never stopped deliberating on the major problems of the modern times in the Mediterranean region and particularly in Turkey. The works he has written or compiled have been the fruit of meticulous observation, but have been above all an expression of his care about the democratization of this country and its complete integration in the European Union...." The most outstanding work of his life has, no doubt, been the journal he founded in 1985: "Notes of Research on the Eastern Mediterranean Region and the Turkish-Iranian World". These notes have been published and distributed with the backing of the Centre of Studies and International Research of the National Foundation of Political Sciences, the French National Centre of Research and other institutions.
