I am a post-doctoral researcher in the Migration Research Center at Koc University (MiReKoc), where I am also the scientific coordinator. I have a PhD in Migration Studies from the University of Sussex, Sussex Centre for Migration Research. My thesis was titled “The Shaping of Turkish Migration Policy: Competing Influences between the European Union, International Organisations and Domestic Authorities.” My MA and BA degrees are both in International Relations from Koç University. My work on migration governance has an international relations focus and explicates the EU’s relationship with Mediterranean countries, and the international organizations’ involvement on migration policy, including policy fields such as readmission, visa and asylum.
