This thesis examines the uprisings, wars, banditry, and the increasing number of refugees due to these problems, based on the news of Zaman newspaper published in Selanik between 1876 and 1880. In this period, the power of the Ottoman State in the Balkans was damaged and at the same time the influence of European states in the region increased. Russia is the most influential state in the uprisings in the Balkans. Especially with the 1877 – 78 Ottoman-Russian War, banditry news began to appear frequently in the newspaper. The Bulgarians persecuted the people living in that region. The Russians also supported these movements of the Bulgarians. The Muslim people had to migrate to the other regions in the Ottoman State. Selanik province is also among the places where refugees come. In this turmoil refugees faced many problems and struggled to survive.

This thesis aims to analyze how poor Syrian refugees navigate their lives concerning the structural violence of neoliberal economic policies and temporary protection status which set the stage for further exploitation, securitization and precarization for Syrian refugees in Turkey. Although the studies associated with refugees have been mostly dominated by the humanitarian, criminalizing and tolerating narratives and have had a strong tendency to portray Syrian refugees' experience as a reproducing cycle of...

In particular the province of Kastamonu became the hub of the campaign against syphilis and the central government set up an invasive system of enforced pre-nuptial health checks, regular controls of the hamams and barber shops there, as ...
Not Only Helpless but also Hopeless: Changing Dynamics of Urban Poverty in Turkey, the Case of Sultanbeyli, Istanbul
Pınarcıoğlu, Mehmet Melih (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
This paper is an attempt to understand the changing characteristics of urban poverty in Turkey since 1980. First, it analyses how the urban poor in Turkey had adopted aggressive survival strategies by strengthening their solidarity networks on religious, ethnic and cultural bases until the 2000s. Then it sheds light on how those networks have dissolved later on thanks to a set of internal and external factors and concludes that Turkey now faces deepening poverty levels and engendering new forms and dynamics...
Activities of Daily Living, Depression, and Social Support Among Elderly Turkish People
Bozo Özen, Özlem; Kurum, Oya (2009-03-01)
The authors examined the effects of activities of daily living (ADL) and perceived social support on the level of depression among elderly Turkish people. Participants were 102 adults older than the age of 60 years. The authors hypothesized that (a) lower levels of ADL would predict a higher level of depression, (b) a higher level of perceived social support would predict a lower level of depression, and (c) perceived social support would moderate the relation between ADL and depression. Although hierarchic...
Identity Formation and the Political Power in the Late Ottoman Empire and Early Turkish Republic
Şeker, Nesim (2005-09-01)
This article examines the reasons, consequences and penetration ways of the nationalist movement in the lands that made up the Ottoman Empire. But if many academics have studied this issue and offered an agreed vision of the disruptive effect that nationalism had in the heart of the Ottoman Empire, an evaluation of the impact and consequences that this process had in the population and the political configuration of the new states that appeared after the end of the Turkish domination has not been made. This...
