Turkish National Police

The Turkish American Research Collaboration (TARC) was established to support the formation and development of collaboration between John Jay College of Criminal Justice, the Turkish National Police Academy, the Turkish Office of Police Intelligence and the ARTIS Research and Risk Modeling Corporation to study the process of radicalization in Turkey. The study aims at understanding the process of radicalization within Turkey. The four November 2003 bombings in Istanbul provide important information and when understood within the framework of scientific study, the cases can provide reliable and valuable data on the process of radicalization within Turkey.
