Strategic Perspectives on Sustainable Development and Migration Issues in Turkey and Abroad

Editor(s): Nigar Pösteki

Book Description

The purpose of this book is to share the output of recent multidisciplinary research in Turkey performed by several academics regarding four main themes: urban studies and sustainability, local governments, environmental and migration issues. These are a significant agenda not only in Turkey but also in other countries. One of the important elements that makes this book interesting and original is that it explains the problems by addressing specific issues through examples. It intends to bring from different perspectives innovative approaches to finding solutions to current problems. A thread that runs through the study is the idea that the making and implementation of public policies at the local level will increase the success of achieving sustainability on a wider scale. The book will have an intellectual impact not only on researchers, students, policy makers and bureaucrats but also on more general readers as an academic resource.
