Independent and cutting-edge analysis on Turkey and its neighborhood

This article underlines the linkage between globalisation and economic life in Turkey based on the outcomes of the author. Turkish politics within the context of globalisation is analyzed by focusing on the effective economic actors, namely those of the “Association of Turkish Industrialists and Businessmen” (TUSIAD), the “Association of Independent Industrialists and Businessmen” (MUSIAD) and the city or region-based “Associations of Industrialists and Businessmen” (SIADs).  By exploring and documenting the ways in which these actors perceive globalisation and articulate it into their discourses and strategies, it is demonstrated that they operate as strong supporters for Turkey’s integration to the European Union, as civil society organisations calling for a more democratic Turkey, and as cultural actors demanding recognition and civil rights/freedoms, and globalization functions as an “internal element” of their alternative visions of Turkey.
