I am a Ph.D Candidate in Department of Political Science at Sabanci University, also working as a teaching assistant for “Law and Ethics” course.
My main field of specialization is foreign aid of non-traditional donors (non-DAC) with a specific focus on China and Turkey. My research examines the ways by which non-traditional donors collaborate or challange DAC-generated global development policy. I also focus on International Relations Theory and publish reading outlines of some substantial readings in IR Theory (in Turkish), especially for Ph.D students who are preparing for their comprehensive exams.
Apart from international relations, I focus on the relation between violence and political party vote shares in conflict-prone societies.
I received my M.A. degree in Philosophy Department/Boğaziçi University, focusing on social justice theory of F.A.Hayek.
