Kanal Istanbul and Montreux | Hürriyet Daily News | Gila Benmayor

One of Prime Minister Erdoğan’s “crazy projects” designed for Istanbul is the waterway to be opened between the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea named Kanal Istanbul.

Professor Cemal Saydam from Hacettepe University’s Environmental Engineering Department spoke in Istanbul. It was the Freelance Architects Association of Istanbul (İSMD) that invited him. After listening to Professor Saydam, it appears that the project is not only crazy but also dangerous for the city.

[…] Right at this point, I want to mention a study of the think tank GPot (Global Political Trends Center) under the umbrella of Istanbul Kultur University about the Montreux Convention and Kanal Istanbul.

The study has been penned by GPot Director Professor Mensur Akgün and Deputy Director Sylvia Tiryaki.
