The Impact of Youth Policies in Turkey

This paper aims to analyse the impact of the social policies developed by the official actors on the participation of young people in Turkey. The discussion particularly focuses on the emancipating and/or limiting effects of family-related policies on the participation and autonomy of young people. In addition, youth employment, migration and spatial policies regarding young people are examined. Youth policies are mainstreaming several areas and are covered by various departments (including ministries and directorates) of the state. The official reports and programmes of different governmental institutions and, also, the (pro and contra) discourse developed by the state actors, civil society organizations and media become main sources for this study.
