Generation Y in Germany: How Turkish Youth in Kreuzberg are Facing the Future

Allison, a Public Policy Studies Major, worked with Dr. Claudia Koonz to develop an anthropological study of Berlin’s Kreuzberg district (a self-named ghetto with a high population of Muslim families). Allison first thought of this project while studying in Duke in Berlin, and used her Berlin Project award to conduct interviews of young adults (ages 17-21) at the Robert-Koch-Oberschule.

After a successful conclusion, Allison used this project to earn a U.S. Fulbright research grant to further develop her ethnography.
