I have finished my PhD studies at the Political Science department at Sabanci University in ─░stanbul. My dissertation research is about citizenship perceptions in Turkey. More specifically, I designed and conducted a survey based on Freedom House’s checklist of questions and applied to a sample of individuals based in ─░stanbul. My PhD research investigates the perceptions on civil, political, and social citizenship rights on the basis of political party preferences.

My majors are Comparative Politics and Political Theory. In addition, I am interested in and working on Citizenship Studies, Migration, Democratization, Theories of Rights and Democratic Theory.
