How can we conjugate the word solidarity in present times?
How can COVID-19 be a starting point for more solidarity in Europe? That’s the starting point for our conversation with Özgehan Şenyuva, a researcher and youth worker based in Turkey. Join us to hear Özgehan’s thoughts on putting solidarity into action, the role of the joker effect, and how Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen differ in their activism.
Özgehan Şenyuva is an Associate Professor in the International Relations Department at Middle East Technical University, Ankara, where he works extensively on youth, public opinion, Turkey-European relations and the politics of European football.
He has extensive experience in research projects, and was the principal investigator for the FREE: Football Research in an Enlarged Europe (free-project.eu), a pioneer FP7 project that was completed in 2015.
