Fatih Muhammet Çüngürlü (IR '19, Turkey)

October 5, 2017

Fatih is studying at CEU this year, thanks to the CEU Alumni Scholarship.

In his own words:

Before CEU I graduated from Istanbul’s Bogazici University with a BA in Political Science and International Relations.

My interest in international relations was sparked during my junior year, after I became an assistant of Dr. Bann Seng Tan for his research about foreign aid and democracy promotion. It encouraged me to focus on Democratization and Democratic Peace.

Outside university, I also worked for the media organization "Turkey and Facts", a fact checking organization attempting to determine the accuracy of politicians’ speeches. It gave me the opportunity to see the importance of the media in shaping public opinion. After CEU I would like to do a PhD in international relations.

I look forward to my studies at CEU. With the help of the CEU Alumni Scholarship I will be able to reach my goals here. Thanks to the alumni donors for making this possible!
