Dr. Selver B. Sahin has just been granted a TUBITAK scholarship for incoming researchers to the country

As part of her research, Selver has proposed to study the contemporary joined-up security and development strategies aimed at transforming conflict-affected countries into peaceful communities. Through setting up an international research platform and undertaking a series of field studies and seminars in the Balkan region, this research project will demonstrate how the relationship between security and development features in policy interventions and how the transformation processes in the regional countries in transition are taking place in practice.

In this two-year project, Selver will be working with another IR Faculty, Dr. Clemens Hoffmann.
