      Meri Izrail. Istanbul, Turkey. I study political science and international relations in Bogazici (Bosphorus) University in Istanbul; but I am in Athens University until June 2002 as an exchange student. I joined the Balkans List in order to read about Balkans from some 'alternative' sources. (Here, "alternative" is used as opposed to the sources I have available at first hand). I am afraid I will not be able to contribute effectively to your discussions since I am a student only at undergraduate level. But I would be glad to help -if I may- to scholars or researchers in case they need a hand from Athens this year -and from Istanbul next year onwards- in their projects/researches about Balkans. Those who may be interested, please keep in mind that I speak, read and write fluently Turkish, English, French and Spanish. I will also be improving my Greek throughout the year.Email: merichco@..., la_chatte_noire@...
