I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Texas, Austin. My dissertation focuses on the role that political institutions play in shaping ethno-political mobilizations. Such an account not only explains the political determinants of ethnic violence and secessionism, but also provides political remedies to such problems. The prescribed theory is explored through the case studies of Kurds and the Roma in Turkey, and Turks in Bulgaria and Cyprus as well as a large-N analysis of the Minorities at Risk dataset.
