FEAS RESEARCH E-BULLETIN FEAS E-BULLETIN DECEMBER 2016 - Page 2

From Fall 2015 to Spring 2016, 15 PhD candidates defended their theses and received a PhD degree from our Faculty. In this issue of the FEAS E-Research Bulletin, we acknowledge these new PhDs and provide the abstracts of their doctoral theses along with the names of their advisors and co-advisors. The doctoral theses in full can be reached from the METU Library. I kindly acknowledge the assistance of the Director of Graduate School of Social Sciences Prof. Dr. Tülin Gençöz, the associate dean of our faculty Prof. Dr. Meltem Dayıoğlu, and our assistant Utku Havuç in this issue’s publication. Our research bulletins are available three times a year. We hope that they help inform the faculty members of the research taking place at FEAS and thereby, foster cooperation and joint-work among faculty members. Prof. Dr. Özlem Özdemir FEAS Dean
