Titel / Title: THE TRANSITION PERIOD OF REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT POLICY OF TURKEY: FROM TRADITIONAL WAYS TO DEVELOPMENT AGENCIES
Abstrakt Abstract:

Turkey was officially admitted in the Helsinki summit of European Union (EU)
leaders in 1999 as a candidate country to join the EU, which indicates a growing
influence of the EU in Turkey in terms of domestic political and economic life. In the
EU, the regions have been strengthened along with the introduction of the “European
of the Regions” policy. Therefore, regional development policies have been changing
and implementing new policies in order to reduce the disparities between the regions
in Turkey. The aim of the thesis is that to investigate the change and the
implementation period of the regional development policies. Therefore, the thesis
analyses the Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) as local institutions where
regional policy, involving a bottom-up approach, has been decentralized. In order to
be able to interpret how the governance practices of the EU, as the regional policy,
pursued in Turkey, the thesis will analyse zmir Development Agency and Çukurova
Development Agency as the main case studies. The aim of the study is to follow the
change in the organisation of the regional policy, and the process of formation of the
RDAs in a centralised country, Turkey.
