Ardıç, M. Nergiz
In this thesis it is aimed to explore the new social policy agenda, in which the role of local governments as policy makers has been increasing. In this respect, the contemporary Turkish local government system, and social policies of the municipalities are analyzed by drawing upon the European Union’s approach on the social policy in the urban context. Within this framework, the social policies of the Ankara Metropolitan Municipality are studied.
