Emre Turkut

Emre Turkut (LL.M.) is a doctoral researcher at Ghent University, Belgium. Under the supervision of Prof. dr. Tom Ruys, his research concerns the compatibility of the Turkish derogation measures adopted in the aftermath of the 15 July 2016 attempted military coup with international human rights law, and with international law more generally, and uses the Turkish case as a springboard to critically address the fallacies of the contemporary derogation regime.

He holds a bachelor degree in Law from Ankara University, Turkey. In July 2015, he obtained his LLM degree in Public International Law from the University of Kent, UK.  His LLM thesis examines the remedial secession doctrine under international law in light of Kosovo and Quebec cases.

Before joining Ghent University, Emre worked as a research assistant in the Public International Law Department at Turgut Ozal University Law School in Ankara, Turkey, where he was responsible for teaching seminars to bachelor students and assisting with the preparation and teaching of various mandatory and elective courses in the fields of (general) public international law, international human rights law and international criminal law. He also served as editorial assistant of the Turkish Journal of Legal Studies (TUJOLS), a national peer-reviewed journal.
