This study examines the relationship between time-varying risk perceptions of investors towards major European countries and Turkey. In that manner, we first obtain the dynamic conditional correlations between the credit default spreads (CDSs) of Turkey and 13 European countries from September 2004 to April 2013. Next, we endogenously detect the shifts in these dynamic correlation levels using a penalized contrast methodology. Accordingly, we find positive level shifts in all correlations following the US crisis. The upward trend in all CDS correlations holds during the eurozone debt crisis, but positive changes in correlations are not flagged as level shifts by the model, except in a few cases. The results suggest that Turkey is not immune to global financial conditions and there is integration between Turkey and the major European economies in terms of risk perception after the global financial crisis.

Leading indicators of currency crises: the case of Turkey
Ant, Müge; Ekinci, Nazım; Department of Economics (2002)
This thesis examines the 1994 and 2001 currency crises in Turkey from the perspective of the leading indicators of currency crises. By applying a methodology proposed by Kaminsky, Lizondo and Reinhart in 1998, the study examines the behaviour of the leading indicators in Turkey in the 1990s and determines whether fundamentals were deteriorated on the eve of the crises. The thesis also attempts to identify the variables that are most useful in predicting possible currency crises in Turkey.
Financial crisis in Southern Europe in comparison with Eastern Europe
Aygül, Cenk (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2014-12)
This paper examines the recent financial crisis in Southern Europe in comparison with Eastern Europe. The findings of the paper are as follows: (i) Firstly, the economic space of the EU can no longer be taken as homogeneous, and the core-periphery structures must be examined more thoroughly; (ii) Second, while the crisis is seen everywhere in Europe as it is attested by the low growth rates in the 2000s, the fates of Eastern and Southeastern Europe have diverged from each other, for they have different ways...
Global dynamics, domestic coalitions and a reactive state: Major policy shifts in post-war Turkish economic development
Öniş , Ziya; Şenses, Fikret (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2007-12-1)
The main objective of this study is to propose an analytical framework to explain the major policy shifts that has characterized post-war Turkish economic development; divided into four phases, starting respectively in 1950, 1960, 1980, and 2001. Its main contribution is to incorporate external and internal factors into this framework within a broadly political economy perspective, attaching particular significance to the role of economic crises in moving from one phase to the other. While the role of exter...
Dynamic correlations between BRIC and U.S. stock markets: The asymmetric impact of volatility expectations in oil, gold and financial markets
Kocaarslan, BARIŞ; Sarı, Ramazan; GORMUS, Alper; Soytaş, Uğur (2017-09-01)
This study investigates the impacts of volatility expectations in oil, gold, currency and the U.S. stock markets on time-varying conditional correlations between BRIC and U.S. stock markets. We use asymmetric dynamic conditional correlation and dynamic conditional correlation models to derive the time-varying relationships. We then examine the dynamic conditional correlations using quantile regressions for a detailed analysis of dependence structure containing non-linear and asymmetric interactions. Our res...
Potential effects of EU membership on Turkish foreign direct investment inflows: implications of experiences of Ireland, Spain and Poland
Ersoy, Mahmut Burak; Ege, Aylin; Department of European Studies (2006)
This thesis aims to analyse the implications of European Union (EU) membership on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows to Turkey by applying a comparative methodology. The effects of EU accession on FDI inflows to three present member states, Ireland, Spain and Poland, is investigated in order to draw conclusions for Turkish case. The attractiveness of each country in terms of locational determinants of FDI are evaluated. Application of our findings in Ireland, Spain and Poland on Turkish case signifies ...
