  • Profile

    I am a PhD Candidate at the department of political science at the University of Amsterdam and the Germany Institute Amsterdam (Duitsland Instituut Amsterdam). My work focuses primarily on the link between social identification and political participation among immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries in Western Europe. I research to what extent this link is affected by the perception of group grievances, personal discrimination, national identification (dual identification), group differences and other contexts; my research interests include the political participation of immigrants and their children, origin country and religious identification, perception of group grievances, personal discrimination, group dynamics and social political contexts.

    I combine quantitative (analysis of survey data) and qualitative methods (interviews in Amsterdam and Berlin) in my project.

    Other research interests include ethnic voting, transnational political participation, external voting of Turkish citizens in the Netherlands, the trade unionization of immigrants, voting behavior and party preferences among immigrants, and other organizational processes.
