Hazel Başköy

Hazel Başköy is a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology and a PhD candidate at the University of Potsdam. In her dissertation, she investigates the processes of dispossession in the context of internal forced displacement and urban transformation in the Kurdish region, based on a case study of Diyarbakır’s Sur district. Her research aims to analyze the dispossession process which took place in Diyarbakır-Sur during the 2015-2016 period when thousands of people were displaced from the city as a result of the armed conflicts and the curfew making their lives unbearable.

She received her MA in Economics program at Anadolu University (Eskişehir, 2015), where she worked on the impact of flexible labor market policies on wage and profit.
