[S6698] Global Academy Workshop - Capitalism, Islamism, and the State: Turkey’s Shifting Political Economy

Created by SYSTEM Manager

SUMMARY:

The MESA Global Academy is an interdisciplinary initiative sustaining essential research collaborations and knowledge production among MENA-focused scholars from the Middle East and North Africa and their counterparts outside the region. By awarding competitive scholarships to displaced scholars from the MENA region currently located in North America to attend meetings, workshops, and conferences, the project harnesses the strengths of MESA’s institutional and individual members to support the careers of individual researchers who study the Middle East and North Africa, but whose academic trajectory has been adversely affected by developments in their home countries. 

In this workshop, 2021-2022 Global Academy scholars present their research.
