Transcript

  • 1. MIGRATION IN TURKEY
  • 2.  Throughout history, Turkey has been affected by diverse forms of migratory movements and refugee flows. Traditionally, Turkey has been a country of emigration with large numbers of its citizens migrating to Western Europe, particularly Germany since the 1970s.  Since the early 1990s, the country has been positioned on the transit route for irregular migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan. Turkey remains a destination for human trafficking in the Black Sea region, with victims usually coming from Moldova, Ukraine, Russian Federation, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.

  • 3.  Turkey has also long been a country of destination for migrants, either economic migrants or refugees or asylum seekers. It has recently emerged as a destination for migrants from Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, as these new migrants envisage Turkey as a gateway to a new job, a new life, and a stepping stone to employment in the West.
