In Fall 2023, St. Lawrence University students collaborated with the U.S. State Department's Division of European and Eurasian Affairs to conduct a "Diplomacy Lab" project focusing on the factors contributing to corruption in European Union member countries. During a ninety-minute session, SLU students and their faculty advisor, Dr. Mert Kartal from the Department of Government, will discuss this formal partnership between SLU and the Department of State. They will share insights into their "Diplomacy Lab" experience and present the findings of their research.

Dr. Mert Kartal earned his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014 and served as an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for five years.  In 2019, he was a guest researcher at the University of Gothenburg's Quality of Government Institute. Dr. Kartal's research focuses on international organizations and good governance. He is an Associate Professor of Government at St. Lawrence University, and teaches a number of courses on international relations as well as a research seminar on political corruption.

Ally Devane, Ben Lloyd, Bridget Lennon, Emma Birkitt, Eva Grover and Owen Russell are students at SLU.
