This thesis aims to illuminate regional development banks’ (RDBs) role in global diffusion of neoliberal policies since the early 1980’s. In this regard, it argues that along with the Bretton Woods Institutions (BWIs), the RDBs have also facilitated the spread of neoliberal policies, as these banks have practiced similar conditional/policy-based lending. In order to better explain the complementary roles of BWIs and RDBs within an analytical framework, the thesis employs the international relations (IR) concept of International Regimes and defines the relevant regime as international neoliberal development regime which has generated its own principles, norms, rules, and decision-making procedures over time. Accordingly, whereas the World Bank and IMF have long represented the leadership of this regime, RDBs like the African Development Bank (AfDB), Asian Development Bank (ADB), and Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) have served as regional counterparts of this same regime. Furthermore, this thesis also examines the different roles and natures of each RDB in the international neoliberal development regime.

An Empirical study on fuzzy C-means clustering for Turkish banking system
Altınel, Fatih; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Department of Economics (2012)
Banking sector is very sensitive to macroeconomic and political instabilities and they are prone to crises. Since banks are integrated with almost all of the economic agents and with other banks, these crises affect entire societies. Therefore, classification or rating of banks with respect to their credibility becomes important. In this study we examine different models for classification of banks. Choosing one of those models, fuzzy c-means clustering, banks are grouped into clusters using 48 different ra...
The Evolution of central banking practices in developing countries: an effectiveness analysis on the post-crisis policy mixes of selected countries
Bozkurt, Zeynep; Cömert, Hasan; Department of Economics (2015)
Implying an expansion in the central bank mandates and policy tools, the post-crisis understanding of central banking brought a challenging task for policymakers, particularly for those of developing countries. The main purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of some selected post-crisis policy mixes. To this end, two methodologies are used: event analysis and index analysis. The former reveals that the overall design of the policy mix requires more attention than the selection of certain tools...
