Georgiana TURCULET

Georgiana holds a PhD in Philosophy at the Central European University in Budapest (Hungary). Currently, she is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Copenhague (Danmark). She had been awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship which has led her to spend one year at Koc University in Istanbul (Turkey). Georgiana was also a one-year Erasmus student at the Pantheon-Sorbonne University  (France) as well as a two-year Visiting Scholar at the Columbia University, New York (United States of America).

Within the field of Political Science, Georgiana specialises in the sub-field of Political Theory. As a philosopher, she is especially interested in exploring issues concerning migration and the rights of migrants from a normative perspective. Georgiana’s research interest attempts to bridge the gap between the realm of philosophers with those of migration scholars and policymakers.
