Strasser, Sabıne (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
As 'Eurobarometer' surveys indicate, European populations are increasingly sceptical about further EU enlargement, especially as far as Turkey is concerned.

Furthermore, opinion polls have shown that the Austrian population's refusal of Turkey is abo...
Nationalism and identity in the former Soviet Union
Light, Margot (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2000-12-2)

Socialism and nationalism in the third world in the age of third worldism
Doğan, Erkan (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2017-12)
This article investigates the relationship between socialism and nationalism with a special emphasis on its Third Worldist variant. The Third Worldist orthodoxy of the postcolonial age blurred the boundaries between nationalism and socialism, with Third Worldist nationalism being an expression of resentment directed against imperialism and the uneven development produced by capitalism. Socialism was understood within this Third Worldist moment in terms of a nation’s political and economic liberation fro...
