The Center for Urban Studies at Mersin University organizes the Colloquium “Mersin in History” every three years.

Today, there is a growing interest in exploring the diversity to which Mediterranean cities have been host to over the centuries. This common heritage of diversity distinguishes Mediterranean cities as well as providing them with a solid basis for strengthening their ties in order to build a better common future.
