Merve Tiregul: Our New Team at School of Global Studies

Foundation Academy proudly welcomes Merve Tiregul as our new colleague at the School of Global Studies. Merve is joining the voluntary* academic team at the School of Global Studies to develop a new course on sustainability and create interdisciplinary Climate Talk programs at the Foundation Academy of Amsterdam.

Here's what Merve has to say about herself:

"My name is Merve Tiregul, and I am thrilled to be a part of The Foundation Academy of Amsterdam. I have a strong passion for political science and its connection to climate change and sustainability. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from the University of Paris I: Panthéon-Sorbonne, where I acquired a solid foundation in the field. Building upon that, I pursued a Master's degree in Political Science at VU Amsterdam, specializing in Global Environmental Governance and Sustainability. During my Master's program, I conducted extensive research on environmental justice and the impacts of waste trade on developing countries for my thesis. Through my studies, I have developed a profound understanding of the relationship between politics and the environment, and I hope to utilize this knowledge to make a meaningful contribution to The Foundation Academy's mission.”

*All the staff of Foundation Academy of Amsterdam are volunteer scholars and professionals who believe in the mission of Foundation Academy of Amsterdam. The mission of Foundation Academy of Amsterdam is to provide education for the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding tolerance and friendship among racial and religious groups. Since 2006 Foundation Academy provides low budget and in many cases free education for citizens of the majority world, migrants, refugees, and persecuted minorities...
