Fulya's work is situated at the intersection of comparative politics and international studies with a particular emphasis on the political economy of development. Broadly, she is interested in how investment policies across emerging economies are transformed in face of global pressures, and how political actors respond to these challenges at the local and national levels. Her current research examines the implications of capital flows on development.
At IBEI, Fulya is part of the Global Governance and the European Union: Future Trends and Scenarios (GLOBE) research team, and she is the PI of Financial liberalization and authoritarian survival in the muslim world (FLAS), a research project funded by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.
