Home for Cooperation, Cyprus
Hayriye is the Program Planning & Communications Officer of the Home for Cooperation. She holds a BA in Political Science and International Relations from Boğaziçi University/Istanbul and a MSc in Communication Science from the University of Amsterdam, with a focus on Political Communication. Her thesis was a case study of Cyprus, where she conducted a comparative content analysis on the framing of municipal and parliamentary election campaign periods, testing the “personalization of politics” argument. Although she is not currently continuing in academia, moving onwards, Hayriye is particularly interested to explore the potential of art as a political tool in creating a space for expressing alternative narratives, and the ways it can be utilized for campaigning by different political actors.
