Profile

I received my PhD in Political Science in 2010. Before joining PAIS in January 2017, I worked as a visiting Assistant Professor at Duke University and as Assistant Professor at Sabancı University, Istanbul. My main research interests include the dynamics and social, political and economic consequences of civil conflicts as well as formal, experimental and empirical analyses of political and economic behavior. I am the principal investigator of the ERC starting grant project EXPOVIBE: Exposure to Political Violence and Individual Behavior, aka "The Project". EXPOVIBE explores the individual level effects of being exposed to political violence in a civil conflict context. Please visit the project website for more information.

Datasets

TPCONED: The Turkish State-PKK Conflict Event Dataset

TPCONED is a dataset on the fatal events of the armed conflict between the rebel organization PKK and the Turkish state that took place on Turkish soil and in which there was at least one combatant casualty. For each event, the exact date, location at the county (town) level, location at the province level, number of TSF and PKK casualties, and the data sources are listed. The dataset covers the conflict from its very beginning in 1984 and is continuously being updated. Events were cross checked across different sources to make sure that the resulting dataset is as comprehensive, complete and accurate as possible.

TPCONED is freely accessible and downloadable for scientific study purposes. Please cite Kibris, Arzu, The Geo-Temporal Evolution of Violence in Civil Conflicts, forthcoming, Journal of Peace Research.
