Sehrazat Gulsum is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology and Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. Primarily interested in the role of bureaucratic discretion in shaping policy implementation and outcomes in autocratic regimes, Gulsum's MA work focused on bureaucratic discretion utilized by municipality and ministry officials in Turkey regarding the implementation of urban transformation policies. She continues to explore under what conditions bureaucratic discretion in local governance can provide for a responsive public service environment even in autocracies.
