On May 10, student teams in FEASS transdisciplinary courses GE440 (Globalization) and GE441 (the European Union) presented their projects to panels of experts. Organized into 17 teams in total, students in both courses worked on their projects intensively throughout the semester, integrating different disciplinary perspectives.

In GE440, students explored various dimensions of globalization. At the conclusion of the semester, they presented the results of their work to a panel composed of Bahar Çelikkol Erbaş (TOBB-ETÜ), Clemens Hoffmann (Bilkent), Nida Shoughry (Bilkent University), Ferhat Emil (Bilkent University) and Hüsnü Ada (Ministry of Economy). The first prize went to a project entitled “Das Kebab: Intergenerational Integration of Turkish Migrants in Germany”.
GE441 students, who analyzed different aspect of the European Union, had their efforts judged by a panel consisting of Başak Alpan (METU), Petek Karatekelioğlu (EU Ministry), Murat Önsoy (Hacettepe University), Emre Sayın (EU Ministry) and Selver Şahin (Bilkent University). The project entitled “Europe\'s Turn to the Right: Investigating the Far Right Populism and Extremism” was awarded first prize.

The panels were followed by a reception where the parents of GE students celebrated the hard-work and success of their children. The reception took place in FEASS Atrium.
