Biography

Prof Dr Umut Turksen is a student centered and a business facing legal academic.

He is interested in the practical application of the law in innovation, societal security and development. He has provided consultancy and training to prestigious international businesses and government projects. This includes technical assistance programmes to multinational corporations (e.g. France Telecom, Orange, Wilmington Plc) and international organisations (e.g. Commonwealth Environmental Investment Forum), professional development training to lawyers and to the EU funded projects (e.g. CEPOL, Secucities, MUTRAP III). In addition to his expertise in EU energy security & law, Prof Turksen has extensive knowledge of counter-terrorism laws in Australia, the EU, the UK and the US as well as publications in international trade, financial crime, arbitration and investment.
His current research involves four different topics:
1) Digital assets and their inheritance;
2) Solidarity in EU's external energy trade and security;  
3) Whistle blower protection and tax crimes in the EU; and
4) Racial profiling in the context of counter terrorist financing.

He is currently leading a EU H2020 project, PROTAX, which tackles tax crimes in the EU.

He welcomes PhD proposals in these areas in particular.
