On the trajectory of urbanisation in Turkey - An attempt at periodisation

2003-05-01
The main objective of this article is to provide a periodisation of the Turkish urban experience by dividing it into three distinct phases: the urbanisation of the state in the context of nation-state formation; the urbanisation of labour power in the context of rapid migration from rural areas; and finally the urbanisation of capital in the context of globalisation. The article argues that recent trends point to a striking socio-spatial polarisation as well as to fragmentation in the Turkish cities.
