Senior Researcher

Evren Yalaz received her Ph.D from the Department of Political Science at Rutgers University. Her research engages with questions about the politics of racial, ethnic, and immigrant-origin minorities; migrant transnationalism; migrants' community organizations; and comparative policies of citizenship, migration, and integration. Her dissertation examined sources of variations in degrees and trajectories of immigrant political incorporation by focusing on Turkish immigrants and their organizations in Germany and France. In this study, she analyzed how immigrants' collective perception of group-based discrimination, stereotyping, and unequal treatment shapes the group's political participatory patterns. Currently, she is working as a senior post-doctoral researcher at GRITIM-UPF.
