Tunçbilek Kömür İşletmelerinde Özelleştirmenin Madencilik İşçilik ve Tunçbilek Üzerine Etkileri

This article examines the impact of structural changes in the local, national and global dynamics on mine workers’ experiences in Tunçbilek coal mine in Kütahya, Turkey. In this context, this paper, based on a field research conducted in 2011 in Tunçbilek, Kütahya, focuses on the changing experiences of coal workers through change. In the field research 40 workers who are still working in Tunçbilek Coal Mine are interviewed in-depth. This coal mine was operated by the state as a state owned industry from 1940s until 2000s. During the 2000s, changing legislation about mining and energy policies in Turkey, a privatization and de-nationalization process of mines has started. Coal mine, traditionally known in the region as a regular and wellpaid work, became the source of flexible and poorly paid work. The safety concern of the public enterprise is replaced by a productivity focus. A gap between private and public sector workers in terms of rights and benefits have emerged. All these findings indicate the emergence of a new coal worker with a new class culture and conflicts.

Investigation of the spatial relationship of municipal solid waste generation in Turkey with socio-economic, demographic and climatic factors
Keser, Saniye; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Department of Environmental Engineering (2010)
This thesis investigates the significant factors affecting municipal solid waste (MSW) generation in Turkey. For this purpose, both spatial and non-spatial tech¬niques are utilized. Non-spatial technique is ordinary least squares (OLS) regression while spatial techniques employed are simultaneous spatial autoregression (SAR) and geographically weighted regression (GWR). The independent variables include socio-economic, demographic and climatic indicators. The results show that nearer provinces tend to have ...
Climate change, agriculture and trade policy: CGE analyses at regional, national and global level
Dudu, Hasan; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Department of Economics (2013)
This thesis investigates the effects of climate change on the Turkish economy by using computable general equilibrium (CGE) models at regional, national and global level. The physical impact of climate change is first translated into yield and irrigation requirement shocks by using a crop-hydrology model developed for this study. Then these are introduced into the CGE models as productivity shocks to investigate their effects on the overall economy. Simulation results suggest that climate change will come i...
The Impact of climate change on agricultural production in Mediterranean countries
Atay, Mehmet Ufuk; Sarı, Ramazan; Yücel, İsmail; Department of Earth System Science (2015)
The aim of the study is to determine the impact of climate change on agriculture for Mediterranean countries by employing vulnerability and econometric analysis. At first step, a composite agricultural vulnerability index is created by principal component analysis (PCA) for Mediterranean counties and world’s top 35 cereal producer countries. Then, based on index scores, countries are grouped by cluster analysis. Several indicators are selected from different international databases according to three compon...
A Critical analysis of social dimension in sustainable development: a case study of Tepekışla dam and hepp in Tokat, Niksar
Köse, Pınar; Kalaycıoğlu, Hediye Sibel; Department of Social Policy (2012)
This study aims to make a critical analysis of the social dimension of sustainable development as implemented within the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process. Social dimension can be assessed on the basis of six social indicators, which are social accountability, local self-reliance, basic human needs, degree of participation, equity, and appropriate technology. In this context, a field study is conducted in four villages which will be affected by the Tepekışla Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant (Pr...
Numerical modeling and performance analysis of solar-powered ideal adsorption cooling systems
Taylan, Onur; Baker, Derek Keıth; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
Energy consumption is continuously increasing around the world and this situation yields research to find sustainable energy solutions. Demand for cooling is one of the reasons of increasing energy demand. This research is focused on one of the sustainable ways to decrease energy demand for cooling which is the solar-powered adsorption cooling system. In this study, general theoretical performance trends of a solar-powered adsorption cooling system are investigated using TRNSYS and MATLAB. Effects of differ...
