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 level. Her current research examines the implications of South-South capital flows on development with a focus on Islamic Financial Institutions.
At IBEI, Fulya is also involved in the EUCROSS and ACCOUNTREG research projects. Recently, her work has been published in World Development and European Journal of Development Research, among others.
