Social and Economic Problems of Turkey in the Context of Modern Migration Processes

Bozkurt U.

Abstract

The purpose of the study is to examine the economic problems arising from the ongoing refugee reception process in Turkey. The volume of immigration has been increasing over a long period and has reached its peak at the present time. Many people were forced to immigrate to Turkey due to the recent wars in the Middle East. Most immigrants enter our country illegally, which puts Turkey in a difficult situation, but migrants also face problems. It is obvious that economic problems are particularly acute, and these problems have two different aspects. Firstly, there are the economic problems faced by immigrants themselves who want to achieve better opportunities in Turkey; secondly, there are the problems of inflation and unemployment that the Turkish government faces due to immigrants. At the same time, problems arise between residents and aliens.
