Caner Bakir

Visiting Fellow

Caner Bakir is a professor of political science with particular emphasis on international and comparative political economy, and of public policy and administration in the Department of International Relations at Koç University. He is the director of the Research Center for Globalization, Peace and Democratic Governance.

Bakir is the recipient of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey Incentive Award in 2010 and Early Career Researcher Award in 2008.

His primary research broadly relates to interactions among structural, institutional, and agential (SIA) factors that affect policy and institutional outcomes. Drawing on the analytic eclectic SIA framework, much of his work demonstrates that desired or preferred policy and institutional outcomes are most likely to occur when SIA-level complementarities and enabling conditions accompany one another in motivating and empowering actors to engage in purposeful agential actions.

His current project investigates political economy of credit and central banking in Turkey, Mexico, and Brazil.

He currently serves as the associate editor of Policy Sciences and the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis, chair of the 2022 Charles H. Levine Memorial Book Prize Committee, member of the Lasswell Prize Committee, and member of the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis Best Article Adjudication Committee.
