Hüseyin Emre Ceyhun

Hi! I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University and also a fellow at the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning.

Broadly, my research interests lie in comparative politics of authoritarian institutions, religion and politics, historical legacies, and public opinion with a focus on the Middle East and North Africa.

My most recent projects examine the reflection of authoritarian mindset on educational and associational landscape in Turkey and the relationship between repression and co-optation in authoritarian contexts. My work was previously published at Refugee Survey Quarterly, and other outlets. For detailed description of my projects, please check my Research page!

My work was funded by Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) and Princeton’s Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice. I hold a Master of Arts with High Honors in Economics from Sabanci University, Turkey and a Bachelor of Arts with High Honors in Political Science and International Relations from Bogazici University, Turkey.
