Child Poverty and Youth Unemployment in Turkey
Bayırbağ, Mustafa Kemal; Göksel, Asuman (Wiley, 2018-09-01)
This article investigates the nature, causes, and consequences of child poverty and youth unemployment in Turkey, which is a transition country between the East and the West. It is argued that this in-betweenness leads to a gap between the intended goals and outcomes of relevant policies. The article places a special emphasis on how the post-1980 neoliberal turn has shaped the policy orientation of successive governments, and transformed the nature of child poverty and youth unemployment in Turkey, making t...
International Perspectives on the State-as-Parent: Naive Idealism or Reluctant Pragmatism
Dixon, John; Welbourne, Penelope (Wiley, 2016-03-01)
Too many children remain at risk of harm, regrettably, in all too many societies. This is despite the almost universal acceptance of the 1990 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Its intention, arguably somewhat naively, is to create two state imperatives: to protect children against threats of harm; and to advance their welfare. Governments, however, have evidenced a pragmatic reluctance to meet these challenges, perhaps a product of conflicting community expectations on the approp...
Transformed landscapes and a transnational identity of class: Narratives on (post-)industrial landscapes in Europe
Meier, Lars; Aytekin, Erden Attila (SAGE Publications, 2019-01-01)
Based on 222 qualitative interviews conducted through a large ethnographic research project on transformed industrial landscapes in six countries, the main argument of the article is threefold. First, landscapes and narratives about past and present landscapes are relevant to the identity of class; second, the transformation of industrial landscapes is most emphatically expressed by nostalgia; third, the narratives are a transnationally constitutive element of class identity. The narratives of workers about...

BURAKGAZI, Sevinc Gelmez; Yıldırım, Ali (SAGE Publications, 2014-04-01)
This qualitative phenomenological study aims to investigate fourth and fifth graders' uses of mass media (TV, newspapers, Internet, magazines) and to assess their various features as sources for science learning. The data were collected from 47 purposefully selected students through focus groups and were analyzed through qualitative analysis using uses and gratifications theory as a conceptual framework. The results indicated that students were active in choosing and utilizing media to meet their cognitive,...
Determinants of political behavior in Istanbul, Turkey
Ozcan, YZ (SAGE Publications, 2000-10-01)
This paper investigates the factors that determined the party preferences in the 1987 and 1991 general elections and the 1989 local election in Istanbul, Turkey's largest metropolitan city. It argues that parry preference is essentially an aspect of individual political behavior, which should be explained by the characteristics of individuals who are, in turn, affected by various macro factors. Theories developed for industrialized western countries are of limited use in developing countries and in need of ...
