In the Summer Semester 2019 Dr.Ulaş Şener of the University of Potsdam and Dr. Özlem Albayrak in Ankara worked with their students on the topic "Political Economy of Populism" since April. The course, which was jointly developed and taught by the two scientists, could be taken in Potsdam, Turkey and elsewhere. Some of the course participants discussed in the seminar room at the University of Potsdam, while others interacted exclusively via the Off-University platform with the lecturers and the other participants. Participants who have successfully completed the course, received a certificate that indicates a workload of 6 ECTS points from the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Potsdam.

The course is financially supported by the University of Potsdam's Innovation Fund as a pilot project.
