Project titled “The Changing Structure of Urban Poverty in Turkey” is an attempt to undestand the changing characteristics of urban poverty in Turkey in the face of 2002 economic crisis and ensuing restructuring and transformation. It has been emphasised in a number of previous studies that the dynamics affecting urban poverty in Turkey had already started to change since the mid-1990s and that the crisis accelerated the change, with th ethe result that the new social groups with no experience of coping with poverty are now under the risk of falling into poverty and the poor have developed new strategies to cope with these changing conditions. Starting from these premises a clustering analysis have been made on the results of the 2000 Population Census to classify the İstanbul neighbourhoods on the basis of a number of indicators known to be closely associated with poverty. These maps have laid the foundation for the selection of 12 neighbourhoods where a total of 2.097 questionnaries and 114 faceto-face interviews have been made. While the questionnaries aim to find out the household survival strategies in te face of changing conditions, the interviews try to trace the poverty in indivuduals’ worlds. The results obtained indicate that some of the previoulsy protected groups such as old couples and single-parents families are now under increasing threat of poverty.


The dynamıcs of poverty ın Turkey
Demir Şeker, Sırma; Dayıoğlu Tayfur, Meltem; Department of Economics (2011)
Poverty analysis has been confined to incidence studies in Turkey. In the last decade research has focused on poverty persistence referred to as „new poverty‟, but it has not been quantified. In this thesis, we examine poverty dynamics in Turkey using the panel feature of the Survey of Income and Living Conditions for the years 2006 and 2007. Our aim is to contribute to the understanding of poverty persistence in Turkey and provide an input to the policy development to combat it. Firstly, we examine poverty...
An Institutional analysis of the transformation of informal housing settlements in Turkey : a case study in the Şentepe neighbourhood of Ankara
Özdemirli, Yelda; Türel, Ali; Department of City and Regional Planning (2012)
Transformation of informal housing settlements by urban renewal and redevelopment has become one of the major tasks of Turkish urban policy in the last decades. Nevertheless, in some cases urban redevelopment could not be facilitated due to low level of investments; and moreover most of the transformed settlements are still problematic with added difficulties brought out by urban transformation itself such as lower levels of physical quality, gentrification or dislocation. Understanding the sources of these...

Kalaycıoğlu, Mehmet; Işık, Oğuz; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2006)
In the world today and in Turkey, poverty and its alleviation has become an important issue. As a result, detailed studies for the identification of poverty need to be done. In the recent years, the spatial aspect of the multidimensional character of poverty is gaining significance. For this purpose, in this thesis, spatial aspects of poverty are tried to be analysed using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the case of Keçiören District in Ankara. Firstly, a digital map of the spatial distribution of t...
Working street children in Turkey and Romania: a comparative historical analysis in the context of new poverty
Bilgin, Hasret Dikici; Hoşgör, Hatice Ayşe; Department of Sociology (2006)
This study aims to explore the dynamics behind the emergence and expansion of working street children since 1990s in Turkey and Romania, in the context of New Poverty. Poverty is not a new concept, it is a dynamic process, accommodating to new circumstances, its scope shrinking from time to time, but surviving ages. Children, on the other hand, are among the groups that are first and foremost affected from the course of poverty. Nevertheless, working street children is a new notion different from traditiona...
Role of investment shocks in explaining business cycles in Turkey
Yüksel, Canan; Voyvoda, Ebru; Department of Economics (2012)
This thesis aims to understand the sources of business cycles observed in Turkish economy. In particular the thesis investigates the role of investment shocks in explaining fluctuations in output. For this purpose a small open economy DSGE model is estimated on Turkish data for 2002-2011 period by Bayesian methods. Variance decomposition analysis shows that permanent technology shock is the key driving force of business cycles in Turkish economy and the role of investment shock is less spelled.
