A. Burcu Bayram, professor of international relations for the Department of Political Science, has been elected as the vice president of the Foreign Policy Analysis Section and the Foreign Policy Analysis section chair of the International Studies Association.

Bayram will serve as the vice president for the upcoming year and will assume the role of president of the FPA Section the following year.

Bayram's election reflects her international and national reputation in the field of international studies and her many contributions to the study of foreign policy-making, promising to bring fresh perspectives and leadership to the FPA Section and to the broader ISA community.

"I am honored to be elected to this major leadership role within the international studies community," Bayram said. "I look forward to representing diverse, interdisciplinary and multi-methodological global perspectives."

Bayram specializes in international relations and foreign policy analysis and has established herself as a leading global scholar in her field. She currently serves as the associate editor of the prestigious journal Foreign Policy Analysis. Her research examines the social, cognitive and emotional factors and processes that shape the preferences and attitudes of policymakers and publics over international cooperation in substantive areas of global development, international law and institutions, and diplomatic negotiations. She has published extensively in top academic journals, contributing to the scholarly discourse on the emotional, cognitive and normative factors that shape foreign policy decision-making.
