  • The Impact of the Syrian Refugee Crisis on the Civil Society Sector in

    • Authors: Laura El Chmali
      Abstract: This article is driven by an interest to explore the role of local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) that deal with Syrian refugees in Lebanon seeing the void left by the Lebanese weak state to cope with this situation. How the Syrian conflict has affected the civil society landscape in Lebanon and how the inflow of international aid has affected the work of this local CSOs, as well as, their relationship with Lebanese state authorities on the national and local levels are examined. To this extent, the ways in which the management of Syrian refugees by local CSOs and CBOs has been affected by external factors, including the Lebanese government policies and the role of international organizations (EU, UN) in managing the crisis in Lebanon are examined.  Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict and the influx of millions of refugees into Lebanon, the civil society sector in Lebanon has undergone significant transformations. To cope with the overwhelming number of Syrians living in Lebanon, Lebanese civil society has expanded with the creation of new CSOs as well as the introduction of additional programs and projects in existing CSOs to assist refugees. These civil society organizations fill a void created by the Lebanese government in its unwillingness or inability to assist with the refugee response in the areas of healthcare, education and vocational training.

  • Kadın ve Doğa Üzerindeki Tahakküme Alternatif bir Bakış: Ekofeminizm
           Üzerine bir Değerlendirme

    • Authors: Elif Gezgin
      Abstract: Türkiye’de ve dünya genelinde yaşanan çevresel ve toplumsal sorunların yadsınamaz düzeye ulaştığı bir çağa tanıklık etmekteyiz. Bu çağın tarihsel arka planına bakıldığında, onun en temel özelliklerinden birinin, sınırları Batılı, eril, burjuva gibi niteliklerle belirlenmiş bir kurucu öznenin, kendisi dışında kalan ve onun karşıtı olarak konumlanan ‘öteki’ unsurlara yönelik tahakkümü olduğu görülür. Bu tahakküm kadın, doğa, azınlıklar ve diğer tüm ötekileştirilenler üzerindeki hakimiyetini yüzyıllardır sürdürmek adına her birine telafisi son derece güç düzeyde zarar vermektedir. Kadına yönelik şiddet her geçen gün daha fazla artmakta, doğa üzerindeki tahribat ise geri dönüşü olmayacak boyutlara ulaşmaktadır. Bu tahakküm; doğanın ve onunla özdeşleştirilen kadının, insanın (esasen erkeğin) hizmetine sunulmuş köleler olarak algılanmasına neden olan indirgemeci ve düalist tarihsel kabullerin izlerini taşımaktadır. Söz konusu kabullerin halen hüküm sürdüğü günümüzde, konunun sosyal bilimler alanında ele alınmasının önem taşıdığı düşünülmektedir. Bu çerçevede bu metinde, konuyu kadın ve doğa üzerindeki eşanlı tahakküme odaklanarak ve tahakküm sorununa bu iki ana problemi de aşan bir kapsayıcılıkta yer açarak irdeleyen ekofeminist yaklaşımın bazı temel izleklerine değinilmesi, bu yolla hakkında yeterli Türkçe kaynağın bulunmadığı ekofeminist araştırma alanının tanıtımına katkı sağlanması amaçlanmaktadır.ABSTRACT IN ENGLISHAn Alternative Approach to Domination on Women and on the Environment: An Overview of EcofeminismIn Turkey and all around the world, we witness an era in which environmental and social problems have reached to an undeniable level. Considering the historical background of this era, it is seen that one of the main features of it is the constant presence of domination on the others different from the constituent subject characterized by qualities / features like Western, masculine, bourgeois and on the ones whose identities are socially constructed against this subject. This domination has been damaging women, the environment, minorities and all other marginalized groups in an irrecoverable way in order to keep his power. Violence against women has been increasing day by day and devastation on the environment has been reaching to an irreversible point. This domination carries the traces of reductive and dualistic historical acceptances which lead to the misperception of the environment and women -mostly identified with the environment- as slaves who have been put at the disposal of human (men in fact). In today’s world which these acceptances linger, it is thought that to handle this problem in social science is of capital importance. Within this framework, some basic ways which ecofeminist perspective follows will be touched upon. This perspective especially focuses on the simultaneous domination on women and the environment and takes the domination problem in an inclusive way exceeding these two main problems. In this paper, it is specifically aimed to present an overview, in Turkish, on the historical depredation of women and of the environment within the framework of its relationship with the issue of domination and dualistic viewpoints reinforcing this domination so as to contribute to the introduction of the ecofeminist approach about which there are few Turkish sources.

  • Analyzing Migration Across Literature: Russian Émigré Literature in the
           Texts of A. Averchenko and Z. Shakhovskaya

    • Authors: Erdem Erinç
      Abstract: This paper uses historical resources, extensively, from the texts of Russian émigré authors A. Averchenko and Z. Shakhovskaya who both wrote on two of the main refugee migrant evacuations out of Russia to Istanbul. The aim was to reveal the role of literary texts in forming a better understanding of the dynamics of such evacuations. The main reason for choosing the above authors’ texts (Notes of a Fool by A. Averchenko and Life Style from the book “Takov moi vek” by Z. Shakhovskaya) was that they were written about two very different evacuations, although both took place during the same first wave of Russian migration. The first is known as General Denikin’s and the second as General Wrangel’s evacuation. The authors were also chosen because of their different age and gender. Analyzing author’s literary texts about differing types, refugee migrant evacuations provides an opportunity to evaluate the dynamics of such evacuations, as well providing an opportunity to read history from another perspective, utilizing various factors and variables such as time, generation and gender.

  • Pre-Pilot and Pilot Studies with Malaysian Nurses on Transnational Nurse

    • Authors: Nirmala Devi Arunasalam
      Abstract: This article reports on research undertaken to identify Malaysian nurses’ experiences of the part-time Transnational Higher Education post-registration top-up degree programmes delivered by one Australian and two UK universities. An interpretive paradigm and hermeneutic phenomenology and ethnographic principle of cultural interpretation research designs were used. A mixed methods approach was chosen, using both quantitative and qualitative methods. The Bristol Online Survey Questionnaire (BOS) and semi-structured interviews were initially selected to collect data. Pre-pilot testing refined the quantitative and qualitative data collection tools. However, the pilot study for BOS failed to elicit useful responses. This led to only the qualitative methodology being used to elicit participants’ views in a culturally sensitive way. The interview guide allowed nurses’ views of their experiences in relation to the research question to be obtained. This study adds to the knowledge and insight on pre-pilot and pilot studies in international multicultural studies in Asia.

  • Askeri Darbe Algı, Bilgi ve Tutum Ölçeği (Adabtö) Geçerlik ve
           Güvenirlik Çalışması

    • Authors: Sevda Gülşah Yıldırım, Eren Yürüdür
      Abstract: Bu çalışmanın amacı, askeri darbelerin etki ve sonuçlarına yönelik yetişkinlerin algılarını, müdahalelerin nedenlerine ilişkin bilgilerini ve genel olarak askeri darbelere yönelik tutumlarını ortaya çıkarmak için bir ölçme aracı geliştirmektir. Askeri Darbe Algı, Bilgi ve Tutum Ölçeği (ADABTÖ) adı verilen bu ölçme aracı, üç temel başlıktan oluşmaktadır. İlk kısımda ‘askeri darbelerin etki ve sonuçlarına yönelik ifadeler’ başlığı altında 27 madde, ikinci kısımda ‘askeri darbelerin nedenlerine ilişkin bilgiler’ başlığı altında 32 madde, üçüncü kısımda ‘askeri darbelere yönelik genel tutumlar’ başlığı altında 23 madde olmak üzere ölçme aracı toplam 82 maddeden oluşmaktadır. Ölçme aracı 5’li likert tipinde (5-Tamamen Katılıyorum, 4-Katılıyorum, 3-Ne Katılıyorum Ne Katılmıyorum, 2-Katılmıyorum, 1-Hiç Katılmıyorum) hazırlanmıştır. Mevcut çalışmanın güvenirliğini belirlemek için iç tutarlılık katsayısı analizi yapılmıştır. Etki ve sonuçlara yönelik maddelerin Cronbach’s Alpha katsayısı .664; nedenlere yönelik ifadelerin .893; genel tutumlara yönelik maddelerin .860 olarak bulunmuştur. Sonuç olarak, ADABTÖ’nün psikometrik özelliklerinin kabul edilebilir sınırlar içinde olduğu görülmüştür.
      ENGLISH ABSTRACTThe Validity and Reliablity Study on Military Coup Perception, Knowledge and Attitude ScaleThe aim of this study is to develop a measurement tool to elicit adult perceptions of the impacts and consequences of military coups, their knowledge on the causes of interventions, and attitudes towards military coups in general. This measurement tool called Military Coup Perception, Knowledge and Attitude Scale consists of three basic parts. In the first part, there are 27 items under the heading 'Expressions on the effects and consequences of military coups', 32 items under the heading 'Knowledge on the causes of military coups' in the second part and 23 items under the heading 'General attitudes towards military coups' it consists. The measurement tool is prepared with Likert scale of 5 (5-Totally agree, 4- Agree, 3- Neither agree nor disagree, 2-Disagree, 1-Completely Disagree). An internal consistency coefficient analysis was carried out to determine the reliability of the current study. It was found that Cronbach's Alpha coefficient for effects and consequences is .664; for knowledge of reasons is .893; and for general attitudes is .860. As a result, it was observed that psychometric features of our scale is within acceptable limits.

  • The Quest for An Authentic Self: Memory and Identity in Philip
           Ridley’s Mercury Fur

    • Authors: Tatiana Golban, Derya Benli
      Abstract: Although Philip Ridley’s popular play Mercury Fur (2005) represents, by its display of disturbing powerful images of violence and rape, one of the most shocking examples of in-yer-face theatre, the play’s major concern is rather with the authentic individual self and authentic human relationships. The purpose of this study is to reveal the ways in which Ridley’s dramatic work displays the search for an authentic self in a highly consumerist world. In this respect, Heidegger’s theory of Being along with various postmodern concepts such as memory, forgetting, and identity are discussed in relation to the success or failure of some characters of the play, who try to attain an authentic image of the self.

  • Referential and vehicular languages in the process of migrant integration

    • Authors: Mónica Ibáñez Angulo
      Abstract: In this article I examined the strategies developed by Bulgarian immigrants living in Spain in order to promote the learning of Bulgarian language and culture among their children. Starting from the incorporated cultural capital brought by immigrants in the form of habitus (Bulgarian language and culture), I analyse how this devaluated cultural capital in the migratory context is effectively reconverted in other forms of cultural capital (objectified and institutionalized) through the development of non-formal and formal courses on Bulgarian language and culture. In this analysis I show the articulation between, on the one hand, the contexts where these informal, non-formal and formal courses take place and, on the other hand, the reconversion of different forms of social and cultural capital: the initial bonding social capital between family members and close group of compatriots is effectively reconverted into bridging and linking social capital as the organization of these courses requires and contributes to the diversification of social networks. The analysis has also a gender dimension given that in most cases, and certainly in the case of Burgos, women are the main social actors and makers of these strategies. The main objective of the article is to show the relevance of social interaction and social networks in the development of reconversion strategies of different forms of social and cultural capital. In addition, the article also expects to raise more awareness towards the relevance of mother-tongue learning in the migratory context.

  • Thinking about ‘transcultural capital’ and ‘transnational artistic
           practices’ of migrant Portuguese visual artists

    • Authors: Leandro Gabriel
      Abstract: This article is inspired by the idea of a transnational art world focused on migrants and the visual arts and it delivers a preliminary theoretical discussion. The article discusses the notion of ‘transcultural capital’ as a perspective within the study of contemporary migrations of artist. It also looks at the concept of ‘cultural scenes’ as places of significant cultural and artistic activities and amenities. Linked to these are ‘transnational artistic practices’ and the production of translocal geographies drawn by an overlap of the migratory destinations of artists and networks of places of creation, production and artistic dissemination which enhance different art markets. This article discusses the ways in which these different theories can contribute to our understanding of the mobility of cultural professionals and, in particular, of the emigration of Portuguese visual artists.

  • Motivational and perception changes in learning Japanese in Brunei

    • Authors: Yuki Akita
      Abstract: This study explores issues related to motivation and perception change towards learning Japanese among language students at the Universiti Brunei Darussalam. The aim of this study is to 1) explore students’ motivational change during the semester, 2) identify the factors that influence these changes, and 3) ascertain any changes to students’ perceptions regarding the difficulty in acquiring Japanese language skills. The questionnaire survey was conducted at the beginning and at the end of a 14–week semester. Findings show that the major motivating factor identified was the teacher and the major demotivating factor was difficulty of the language. It was also found that while students perceived writing skills were the most difficult at the beginning of the semester, their perception about difficulty has shifted to listening skills at the end of the semester.

  • CONFERENCE REPORT: The Migration Conference 2017 Athens, August 23-26,
           2017 Harokopio University

    • Authors: Emília Lana de Freitas Castro, Ülkü Sezgi Sözen
      Abstract: According to the UN, in 2015 the number of international migrants was estimated on 244 million, which means that 3,3 percent of the world's population is on the move or live in a country other than his/her country of birth/origin. Globally, in 2014, the number of refugees was estimated approximately 20 million, which has been increasing since the so-called "refugee crisis" has started. This increase in the number of movers called attention to migration studies and approached the issue from a different perspective, under an international and interdisciplinary point of view. Therefore, the 5th edition of The Migration Conference has been organized in a fully inclusive way, bringing about 500 scholars, researches, representatives of policy making bodies, media, and NGOs all around the world together in Athens, Greece.

    • Authors: Fulya Akgul Gok, Elif Gökçearslan Çifci
      Abstract: Associated with globalization, transformation and mobility all around the world may result in positive and negative impacts on welfare of the countries as well as on psycho-social and economic positions of the individuals. Especially in under developed and developing countries, such effects are more evident. The individuals living in these countries are forced to leave their homeland and become refugees in some other countries due to social, economic, psychological and environmental effects. Migration process has become a threat for physical, psychological, social, economic and cultural development of these children at present and in the future. This study is a content analysis on the position of Syrian children and how they are mentioned in three mainstream newspapers in Turkey (March-April-May 2016). These newspapers are Star, Hürriyet and Cumhuriyet. Only headlines were analyzed and columns were not taken into consideration. News from these papers are categorized according to subjects and contents and then sub-categories were composed.

  • Demographic gaps between Syrian and the European populations: What do they

    • Authors: Mustafa Murat Yucesahin, Ibrahim Sirkeci
      Abstract: Syrian crisis resulted in at least 6.1 million externally displaced people 983,876 of whom are in Europe while the rest are in neighbouring countries in the region. Turkey, due to its geographical proximity and substantial land borders with the country, has been the most popular destination for those fleeing Syria since April 2011. Especially after 2012, a sharp increase in the number of Syrian refugees arriving in Turkey was witnessed. This has triggered an exponential growth in academic and public interest in Syrian population. Numerous reports mostly based on non-representative sample surveys have been disseminated whilst authoritative robust analyses remained absent. This study aims to fill this gap by offering a comprehensive demographic analysis of the Syrian population. We focus on the demographic differences (from 1950s to 2015) and demographic trends (from 2015 to 2100) in medium to long term, based on data from World Population Prospects (WPP). We offer a comparative picture to underline potential changes and convergences between populations in Syria, Turkey, Germany, and the United Kingdom. We frame our discussion here with reference to the demographic transition theory to help understanding the implications for movers and non-movers in receiving countries in the near future.
