New Visiting Fellows Join Kroc


Five new scholars of conflict and peace have joined the Kroc Institute as visiting research fellows for the 2011-12 academic year.  

During the fall semester, Aysegul Aydin, an assistant professor in the department of political science at the University of Colorado-Boulder, will write a book manuscript focused on Kurdish insurgency in Turkey. Zana Citak, an assistant professor of international relations at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey, will conduct research on Turkish Islam in Europe. Roger Mac Ginty, who holds a faculty position in the School of International Studies at St. Andrews University in Scotland, will study peacebuilding indicators.       

Joining the Kroc Institute for the full academic year are Emmanuel Katongole, associate professor of theology and world Christianity at Duke University and the founding co-director of the Duke Divinity School’s Center for Reconciliation. Katongole will conduct research on reconciliation in Africa. Will Moore, a professor of political science at Florida State University, will research the impact of institutions on state torture practices.

Each year, the Visiting Research Fellows Program brings outstanding scholars (at the post-doctoral junior and senior scholar level) to the Kroc Institute to conduct research and participate in the life of the Institute.
