This thesis examines the border disputes between villages that arose between 1943-1960. The demographic change during the transition from the Ottoman Empire to the Republican period led to the emergence of the peasantry as an important category for the Republican regime. Transforming the structure of agricultural production, the economic conjuncture of the post-World War II period led to mechanization and caused an increase in the prices of agricultural products. For this very reason, land disputes among the peasants have escalated significantly. The state apparatus construed economically based land sharing and border demarcation within the scope of the administrative border dispute. This thesis essentially seeks answers to two questions. The first is the methods and factors utilized by the bureaucratic apparatus in determining the borders between villages. The second is to what extent the bureaucratic apparatus was apt to respond to the socio-economic claims of the rural population. Based on these questions, this study attempts to analyze the tension between the administrative concerns of the bureaucratic apparatus and the socio-economic demands of the villagers as rooted in their daily lives. The main method for this study is using the qualitative data analysis method to look at the border detection reports in the republican archives.
