Küreselleşme ile göç de özellikle son yirmi yıldır ilgi çekmeye başlamış, güvenlikleştirilmiş ve “yüksek politika” konusu olmuştur. Bu çalışma düzensiz göçü Adana ili özelinde ele alarak göçü küreselleşme öncesi yaklaşımlarla yönetme sorunsalını tartışmaktadır. Bu bağlamda, 2011 yazında, Adana Yabancılar Şube Müdürlüğü Misafirhanesi’ne gelen düzens...
Article
Full-text available
Over the past two decades, constructivist International Relations (IR) scholars have produced substantial knowledge on the diffusion and adoption of global norms, emphasising the role of Western norm entrepreneurs in constructing and promoting new norms to passive, generally non-Western, norm takers. An emergent literature on norm dynamics unsettle...
Article
Despite taking significant steps to comply with the Copenhagen criteria after receiving the candidate-country status in 1999, Turkey gradually moved away from European norms, values, and policy demands in various policy areas. This study explores (de)-Europeanization of Turkey's gender equality policy in terms of both legislative changes and the sh...
Article
This research problematizes the contested nature of the global norm diffusion by focusing on intra-group rivalries and fragmentations shaping local responses (often reactionary and resistant) to global norms. Such an examination is important primarily to account for what leads to shifts in the local reception of norms over time. This study empirica...
Article
The rise of populist far-right parties and anti-gender movements across the globe have challenged diverse equality and social justice projects. Despite this inhospitable political climate, social justice movements continue to advance the claims of intersectionally marginalized social groups. Emerging out of the experiences of black women in the US,...
Chapter
This chapter examines Turkey-EU relations through the prism of gender equality policies. It argues that Turkey has been undergoing a process of “de-Europeanization”, in which commitments and policies to improve women’s status in Turkey have been negated by gender discourses and policies adopted by the ruling AKP (Justice and Development Party - Ada...
Article
Since winning its first electoral victory in 2002, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) has promoted nuclear energy as crucial for satisfying rising energy needs, triggering economic development and increasing competitiveness of Turkey. This hegemonic discourse has been challenged by the anti-nuclear platform (ANP) that has framed nuclear energy...

Existing studies on Syrian refugees in Turkey focused either on the difficulties refugees have been experiencing or on how refugee identities have been unilaterally transformed during their interaction with the host culture. Drawing on the literature on identity and politics of recognition, this chapter argues that intercultural encounters transfor...
Chapter
Women in Turkey received the right to vote and run for office in local elections in 1930 and in national elections in 1934. While Republican modernizing reforms improved the status of women, there was a 10-year gap between recognizing women’s rights to education and to divorce and extending women the right to vote. This chapter argues that the exte...

Humanitarian intervention is usually discussed in relation to its legitimacy in international law and...
Article
Full-text available
A survey of the literature on political violence reveals that there is no paradigmatic approach with which to study different forms of collective political violence. Thus, there is a need for a new framework which overcomes the shortcomings of the existing literature. While the study of social movements has generally focused on non-violent collecti...
