There are two separate but linked areas of Dr. Kamiloglu’s research.

In the first path, he looks at human rights activists from the Global South, their understanding of human rights discourses in various countries, how discourses of HR travel through International Law, INGOs, NGOs and finally society. Concepts of violence, utopias, formation of ideologies and its aesthetics, neoliberalism plays an important role in his research.

In the second path, he works on the concept of ‘right to the city’ with local focus. Here, he thinks on the relation between human rights and the global economy in the Global South. This area of research covers the relation between austerity programmes, economic policies and the concept of rights. Consequently, he tries to analyse complex relation between current global economic model and rights discourse.
