Description:

Keyman Visiting Scholar Senem Aslan examines amnesties of political prisoners in the Turkish Republic, looking at the tangible and symbolic functions they serve in managing relations between the state and the opposition. It argues that amnesties can be tools of state coercion, rather than attempts at reconciliation or political cooptation.

The Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium brings together an interdisciplinary audience to build awareness of global research on campus. This series promotes dialogue on scholarship and develops a deeper sense of community among Buffett Institute affiliates. Each meeting lasts one hour; lunch is provided. Due to space constraints, we will not admit attendees once the space reaches capacity.
