Aisenour Bitsen

Finance & Institutional Partnerships Director

Having served as Sponsorship Coordinator for the European Student Conference 2015 at Yale, Aisenour serves as the Treasurer & Journal Coordinator for European Horizons. Coming from Istanbul, Turkey, she represented Turkey in its National Debate Team, winning theEuropean Debate Championships (EurOpen) in 2012. On the event management side, she convened the first fully-free fully-student-run debate tournament, Eurasian Schools Debating Championships (ESDC) 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. Moreover, she took part in the Winpeace project, which gathered Turks, Greeks, Turkish and Greek Cypriots for conflict resolution. 

Aisenour believes in Europe and the European Horizons because, “The EU stands for a supranational institutional framework, diverse and efficient, providing it with an admirable economic asset. At a time when many lose hope in the EU, it is crucial for our generation to advocate for the sustainability of a united Europe. European Horizons can contribute to the debate by flourishing new conversations here in the US, while looking at the EU from a distance.”
