İbrahim Öker

Welcome! I am an incoming visiting assistant professor at Union College (2024-2027). Previously, I was a visiting instructor at Macalester College. I obtained my Ph.D. in political science from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, in February 2024.

My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of social welfare provision, authoritarian politics, and the political economy of the Middle East and North Africa. My research has appeared in the Journal of European Social Policy, World Development, and Social Indicators Research. Abstracts and published versions of my work are available here.
