Carl Sacklen

I’m a student at the University of Chicago and I’ve previously studied in London. At UChicago I plan to study Political Science and Public Policy with a focus on International Relations and Business.

Here, I am a Data Research Assistant at the Chigago Project on Security and Threats, where I analyse recent terrorist attacks and update one of the world’s largest databases on the subject in order to produce scholarship with policy relevance to help reduce security threats and enhance stability across the world. I also have a column about European politics and economics at The Gate, which is the university’s undergraduate political review.

TalkPolitics is a group I co-founded with the aim of enhancing democracy. We publish articles to simplify politics and papers to suggest improvements to our democracy. From its beginings to March 2017 I was its editor-in-chief and I’m currently its Director of Research. We’ve been endorsed by many prominent indiviuduals in British politics.
