About the speaker
Before joining the RSC in June 2016, Fulya was an assistant professor in the Department of International Relations at Çukurova University (Turkey). She holds a MA in International Studies from the University of Warwick and a PhD in Politics from the University of Nottingham. Her general area of research is comparative politics with particular emphasis on the interplay between international, regional and domestic policymaking processes in the field of human rights.
After spending a year at the European University Institute as a post-doctoral fellow in 2013 working on migration governance in Southeast Europe, she had the opportunity to participate in various research projects conducted by International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICPMD), the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) focusing on the repercussions of the Syrian refugee crisis.
At the RSC, Fulya is working on the ‘Politics of the Syrian Refugee Crisis’ project, which aims to better understand the responses in the main host states of first asylum for refugees from Syria: Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
