Turkey at a Migration Crossroads: Source, Destination and Transit

Jean Monnet Chair at Istanbul 29 Mayıs University cordially invites you to a webinar, join us on Monday, 28 June 2021:

The fifteenth Jean Monnet Chair event will be a webinar by Dr. Selen Artan from Istanbul 29 Mayıs University with the title of “Turkey at a Migration Crossroads: Source, Destination and Transit”.

This seminar explores the history of migratory movements from and to Turkey over a period of sixty years. In the 1960s, Turkey became one of the source countries sending labor migrants to the main industrial capitals of Europe. As migratory routes evolved after the end of the Cold War and due to rapid globalization, Turkey transitioned into a country of destination from the 1990s onwards. Over the last decade or so, rising levels of high-skilled migration to Europe has placed Turkey at a migration crossroads as a country of source, destination and transit.
