Thesis Title: The Power of Invisibility
Current Occupation: Assistant Professor, Utrecht University
Reflections on the DCGC Experience: Excellent Doctorate program with great opportunities to study in different countries and learn about different university cultures. I had no problem with financial issues, insurance contracts, workplaces and I had fantastic supervisors. The only issues I encountered during writing the dissertation were my own struggles with motivation and time management. This study program, together with the Common Session conferences, created a special relation between different cohorts where I found many good friends and excellent colleagues.

Thesis Title: Revisiting Remand Imprisonment within Biopolitics: A Study on Turkey’s Juvenile Justice System through Legislative, Judiciary and Executive Powers
Current Occupation: Post-Doctoral Researcher, Utrecht University
Reflections on the DCGC Experience: Looking back at the last few years, since 2012, I can see that the DCGC program has enriched my life in many ways. The mobility scheme of the program between the four consortium universities provided me with a unique experience to live in different cultures and, most importantly, different academic environments. Besides the experiences of studying at University of Kent and Eötvös Loránd University, I have made life-long international friends and colleagues. With my background in sociology, the DCGC program, which is based on the decades-old Common Study Program in Criminology, has given me the opportunity to engage with a broad range of topics and literature besides my own subject, that is, imprisonment and youth justice. Being exposed to such a diversity of subjects, such as, drug trafficking, organized crime, terrorism, crimes of the powerful, green criminology, policing, feminist criminology and many others, is very exciting and motivating. Common Sessions have been very helpful in that sense. At the moment, I am happy to work as a Post-doc researcher in one of the Consortium partners, Utrecht University, and I am glad to enhance my academic knowledge and experience on a truly cultural and global path.

Current Occupation: Research Fellow and Associate Lecturer, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
Reflections on the DCGC Experience: My time as a DCGC was full of challenging, inspiring, and life changing experiences. I am incredibly grateful for all those who made the DCGC happen, including the staff from all four universities, my fellow candidates, my supervisors, and the people involved in the research. A special thank you to the European Commission for funding this initiative – may education continue to build bridges and foster a global community of learning.

Thesis Title: The Formation and Development of Illicit Performance and Image Enhancing Drug Markets: Exploring Supply and Demand, and Control Policies in Belgium and the Netherlands
Current Occupation: Research Fellow at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre, University of New South Wales
Reflections on the DCGC Experience: One particular aspect of the DCGC program that I really enjoyed was its global nature. It allowed me to obtain international research experience and provided opportunities to develop my international network and to enhance my career. While at times this was intense due to the frequent moving – lived in Germany, UK, the Netherlands, Canada and Denmark -, it was a very valuable experience and one that I will never forget. I met many interesting people, visited beautiful places and experienced new cultures, which helped me to critically look at my topic from different angles. This was not just due to the global aspect of the program but also because of its multi-disciplinary nature. I have worked with academics from not just criminology, but also psychology, sociology, sport science and public health. This international collaboration had positive implications for my professional development and made me a better researcher.
