Personal profile

PhD Project

Begum's research focuses on the conditions that contribute to the stability of hybrid regimes, with a particular focus on how legitimacy and legitimation plays a part. Once thought to be a transitional regime type, the rising number of hybrid regimes, and their continued existence over the decades, poses the question of how they are able to remain stable. Begum's research takes a comparative approach to answering this question, with a particular focus on Russia and Turkey. She is supervised by Dr. Durukan Kuzu and Prof. Matt Qvortrup.
