Turkey’s Ever-Evolving Attitude-Shift Towards Engagement with Its Diaspora

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Turkey is on its way to establishing a coherent and systematic emigration and diaspora engagement policy which emphasises cultural, political and socio-economic ties all together. It manages to achieve these goals by extending extraterritorial cultural and citizenship rights for Turkish migrants and their descendants in various countries of residence. This chapter analyses the reasons behind Turkey’s development of emigration and diaspora engagement policies since the beginning of its first mass migration flows in 1960s as it seeks to understand the drivers of policy changes over the same period.

Wherever we have a citizen, kin or relative, there we are.

The motto of the Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities.
