Journal: New Perspectives on Turkey

A leading Journal in Turkish Studies is now being published in partnership with the LSE Chair


Beginning in 2010, the leading international social science journal on Turkey, New Perspectives on Turkey, will be published in partnership with the LSE Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies. The editorial office of the journal will remain in Istanbul but some joint events including conferences are being planned. The biannual lectures organized jointly by the Chair and SOAS are already being published in the journal.

This new partnership is made possible thanks to the generous financial support of Turkish Economy Bank (TEB) (Türkiye Ekonomi Bankası).

The Chair is planning to organize three conferences focusing on economic, political and social aspects of Turkey jointly with New Perspectives on Turkey through the generous support of Turkish Economy Bank (TEB) (Türkiye Ekonomi Bankası). The first conference has already been organized on 22 October 2010 in Istanbul, Boğaziçi University under the title of "Urban Classes and Politics in the Neoliberal Era: Turkey in Comparison", and it has focused on the rise of new industrial centres in Anatolia from both economic and socio-political aspects. The next conference will be in 2011 at LSE, and it will focus on the Turkish economy and politics, an overview of Turkey's thirty years experience with globalization. The third conference will be organized in 2012, and its theme and venue will be announced later. We gratefully acknowledge the support of TEB for funding these conferences in the following three years as well as publication of New Perspectives on Turkey in partnership with LSE Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies.
