Discussion and evaluation of mining and environment laws of Turkey with regard to eu legislation

Şafak, Şükrü
Turkey is trying to become a member of the European Union. Within this frame, studies are proceeding for harmonization of the Turkish legislation with the EU legislation. European legislation might have positive or negative impact on the mineral extraction industry and national mining law. Since there is no title directly related to mining policy in the EU legislation the mining policy of EU was evaluated especially under the titles“energy” and “environment”. In this thesis, the Turkish mining regulations and the environmental aspects of the mining activities have been investigated and discussed in comparison with those of EU. The latest developments about mining sectors of Turkey and EU have been evaluated and the comparison between EU directives and Turkish laws and regulations about mining have been made. In this study, modifications that should be realized in laws and regulations and measures that should be taken by Turkey as a candidate country for EU discussed and some proposals have been made.


Turkish migration to the EU: Non-monetary benefits and selection effects
Özen, İlhan Can (2011-06-01)
This work focuses on Turkish migration, given the possibility of Turkey's membership into the EU. Accurately predicting the amount and nature of immigrant flows that will result from the expansion of the EU has in the past proved to be difficult. A survey conducted by the authors in Turkey in order to tackle this issue, allowed us to identify certain non-monetary factors that are important in the migration decision. Attitudes about the quality of healthcare, quality of education, and other non-monetary bene...

Turkey is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in Europe. In the past, many destructive earthquakes occurred in Turkey, in which numerous historical structures were damaged seriously or even collapsed. In spite of the high seismic hazard in Turkey, unfortunately there exists no technical document regarding the seismic assessment and rehabilitation of historical structures. Considering this issue, efforts to prepare an advisory guideline document for architects and engineers regarding seismic risk asse...
The influence of orientalism on European Union - Turkey relations
Becan, Petek; Yurdusev, Ahmet Nuri; Department of European Studies (2007)
This thesis analyzes the influence of Orientalism on Turkey’s relations with the European Union (EU) since Turkey’s application for full membership. EU-Turkey relations are elaborated in the context of how Europe constitutes its relations with Turkey as an oriental ‘other’. Thus arguments on the role of the other in identification process, self/other conceptualization and Orientalism as an othering mechanism of the west are presented to provide a theoretical framework. The question of how Turkish-European a...
Challenges of Safe Urban Speed Management in Developing Countries
Türe Kibar, Funda; Tüydeş Yaman, Hediye (2019-06-20)
Turkey, as one of the middle-income countries, is facing with an increasing motorization in the last decades. This situation also causes a major traffic safety problem on Turkish roads, where 7000+ people lost their lives, and almost 300,000 people get injured annually. When considering factors causing traffic accidents, ‘speed’ is a complex phenomenon which needs to be examined with more attention and different dimensions. This becomes even more problematic in urban regions that face large migration and th...
Turkey: A Vicious Cycle of Euroscepticism?
Düzgit, Senem; Şenyuva, Özgehan (Palgrave Macmillan, 2021-01-01)
Relations between Turkey and the European Union (EU) are currently facing an impasse. After a long period of stagnation, accession negotiations, which began in 2005, are now de facto frozen. Recent public opinion polls in Europe record an all-time low popularity of Turkish membership across the European public, whereas the European political elite has long dropped the discourse on Turkish accession in favour of a “strategic partnership” with Turkey. A similar picture is also observed in Turkey, with growing...
