About this Event

This Panel includes three of the contributors launching an edited book presenting new research on the experiences of women migrants in Turkey. Written by researchers with established track records of work on gender and migration in Turkey it reflects on the interactions between gender, migration, politics, economic and social policy and presents the experiences of women migrants in the workplace and in asylum and humanitarian protection regimes.

Çağla Ünlütürk Ulutaş is an Associate Professor at University of Pamukkale. She earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Ankara University. She conducts interdisciplinary research focusing on gender, migration and social policy.

Reyhan Atasü Topcuoğlu was awarded a PhD in sociology by the Humboldt University of Berlin, and is currently an associate professor at Hacettepe University. Her book “Ideology and Human Trafficking” is published by Routledge. Her research interests are migration, social policy, and feminist theory. I will buy my plain tickets next week when I turn to Ankara.

Dr Lucy Williams (one of the Editors) is a freelance researcher and Senior Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Kent. She is involved in community work, activism, lecturing and research with refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.
