In the final week of the INSITER research and study trip the group of MEIA students of the Turkish German University visited a number of political institutions in Berlin, Germany. Together with students from the University of Cologne and the Centre International de Formation Européenne meetings were held inter alia with representatives of the German Chancellery, the German Bundestag, the German Federal Foreign Office and the German Ministry of Finance. In addition to the visit to official state institutions the stay in the German capital also served the purpose to exchange views with researchers and practitioners from Berlin-based think tanks and interest representations, notably the Institute for European Politics (IEP), Polis 180 and the German Trade Union Confederation. Finally, in order to grasp the history of Germany and Berlin, the group also went on a city tour that focused on the political architecture of the city. Students and organisers are extremely grateful for the precious time and the valuable input from the different hosts and institutions.
