Labour migration from Turkey to Western Europe, 1960-1974 : a multidisciplinary analysis

Ahmet Akgündüz

Groundbreaking in its comprehensiveness, this book illuminates the migration of workers from Turkey to Western Europe with new perspectives previously overlooked in research. The first study of its kind to cover the entire migration process, making extensive use of primary as well as secondary sources in four languages, it draws on both the historiography and the social sciences of migration. Presenting new analyses of the so-called 'push' factors behind this movement, "Labour Migration from Turkey to Western Europe" also explores are the role of the sending state, the system and channels through which labour exits, the labouring population's attitudes towards moving to the West and the relevance of social networks in the migration process. A critical assessment of the significance of Turkish labour migration with regard to the demand for foreign labour in Europe is offered, with particular emphasis on the cases of Germany and the Netherlands.With an examination of the reasons for which the guest worker system as a whole was introduced into Western Europe, alongside a cross-comparative investigation of the employment Turkish migrants by economic sector, this volume adopts a multidisciplinary approach that will be of interest to researchers and policy makers alike in the field of migration.
