Institutional Performance Of İzmir Development Agency
Eldeniz, Feyza; Kayasü, Serap (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2013-01-01)
Dünyadaki gelişmelere paralel olarak bölgesel politika sorunu Türkiye’nin gündeminde önemli bir konu haline gelmiştir. Bununla birlikte, plan ve proje gibi politik araçlar her bölgenin kendi dinamiğine göre aşağıdan yukarıya kurumsal oluşumu dikkate almada yetersiz kaldığı için; bu gibi politik çabaların uygulanmasında düşük performans sergilemiştir. Avrupa entegrasyonu, Türkiye’nin yüksek merkeziyetçi yapısı üzerine olumlu etki yapmıştır. Böylece Türkiye, kurumsal reformlar kapsamında bir dizi değişiklik y...
Challenges for Regional Governance in Turkey: The Role of Development Agencies
Ertugal, Ebru (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2017-11-20)
This article examines the functioning of Regional Development Agencies (DAs) in Turkey from a policy instruments approach with a view to uncovering their intended and unintended consequences for regional governance. The policy instruments approach challenges the functionalist view that instruments are merely technical and neutral devices for realizing policy aims in the most effective way. Instead, the article shows that as policy instruments, the DAs are highly political with important political consequenc...
THE ROLE OF REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT AGENCIES IN TURKEY FROM IMPLEMENTING EU DIRECTIVES TO SUPPORTING REGIONAL BUSINESS COMMUNITIES?
Lagendijk, Arnoud; Kayasü, Serap; Yasar, Suna (2009-10-01)
Turkey's step-by-step embedding in the institutional and policy environment of the EU is currently compelling the country to establish a fitting structure of regional governance. A key element in this structure is the creation of regions at the NUTS-II level which will be equipped with Regional Development Agencies (RDAs). Yet the present political and economic situation in Turkey throws some doubt on the scope and future for RDA development. To what extent will the central state be able and willing to devo...
Participation and governance in regional planning in the case of Zafer Development Agency
Varış, Sıla Ceren; Gedikli, Bahar; Department of City and Regional Planning (2016)
Regional planning involves widespread issues concerning the overall development of regions. This thesis focuses on evaluation of participatory planning practices at the regional level of planning. Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) are considered as the institutions that contribute to the participatory planning practices and governance at regional level. International examples are presented focusing on the topics of participatory planning and governance in regional planning. The study elaborates the parti...
Epoxidation of Propylene on a [Ag14O9] Cluster Representing Ag2O (001) Surface: A Density Functional Theory Study
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2012-01-01)
Density functional theory calculations were employed to study partial oxidation of propylene on a [Ag14O9] cluster representing Ag2O (001) surface for which positive effect for ethylene oxide formation has been reported in our earlier work at the same level of theory (Fellah et al., Catal Lett 141: 762, 2011). Propylene oxide (PO), propanal, acetone and G-allyl radical formation reaction mechanisms were investigated. P-allyl formation path and two propylene adsorption paths resulting in PO formation are com...
