For the first time in the history, US Azeri and Turkish Diasporas have founded a Pax Turcica Institute (PTI), a U.S.-based non-profit research and advocacy organization dedicated to raising knowledge and awareness of the Turkic world, and advancement of the common Turkic-American interests.

PTI is going to hold a Pax Turcica conference this spring at one of the biggest universities in United States.

Furthermore, the PTI will work towards the establishment of expert scholarly boards to facilitate research projects, educational programs on Turkic history, identity, languages, cultures, on geopolitical and economic affairs in Central Eurasia, on the US relations with Turkic nations, and other topics of interest.

Another goal, that PTI has set up for itself is working on establishing Azerbaijani Studies Program at any of the popular US institutions of higher education.
