The city gained its freedomin 167 BC. These events are explained in detail with examples from the coinageof the city. The economic and cultural stance of the city in Late HellenisticPeriod and under the Roman Empire are interpreted in consideration of thewritings from ancient sources as Strabo, Vitruvius and Pliny. Farming andmining were the main sources of income and they are analysed through theinformation given by ancient sources and learned today. The level of prosperityand economical life in Alabanda are presented. The depictions on the coinsminted in Alabanda are described; the gods and goddesses that were revered andworshipped in the city and the cult identities of political authorities such asSeleucids, Rhodes and Roman Empire are analysed.

  • Relation of Noroeconomics and Tax Compliance

    • Authors: Benan Çıplak
      Abstract: Taxcompliance; is a concept that is directly proportional to the desire, morality,and desire of individuals to pay taxes. When individuals’s tax ethics andconsciousness have developed, the compliance they are showing for paying taxesis also increasing. The thesis thatindividuals are rational is incorrect. The neuroeconomic approach is based on limited rationality andirrationality. According to thisapproach, individual decisions are influenced by emotional and neurologicalfactors. Neuroeconomics, a new area ofresearch, has been mentioned and assessments of the relationship betweenneuroeconomics and tax compliance have been made in this study.

  • An Analysis of the Teaching Staffs of the City and Regional Planning
           Departments in Terms of the TUPOB Criteria

    • Authors: Seval Cömertler
      Abstract: In the context of the quality and norm studies for theplanning education, the Association of Planning Schools of Turkey (TUPOB)developed certain measures, which were essential for Cityand Regional Planning (CRP) departments. A recent and comparative study, which shows the impact of TUPOB criteria - developed in2011 - in structuring the CRP departments, and reveals whether the existing CRPdepartments provide the TUPOB measures or not, has not entered into the literature. In the direction of such a deficiency, the aim of thisarticle was to investigate the CRP departments in terms of the TUPOB criteriain the context of the teaching staff adequacy. The research contained 21 CRPdepartments which were categorized in 3 groups. In the study, the adequacy ofthe teaching staff were examined in terms of the number of teaching staffs, thediversity of teaching staff, and the number of first year students per teachingstaff. Data was obtained from 2016-OSYS Higher Education Programs and QuotaGuide. Descriptive statistical analysis techniques were applied to thevariables. Analysis findings were first presented on groups’ basis, followed bycomparative evaluations between groups.Analysis showed the absence of any group which met allcriteria of TUPOB, moreover that of any planning school. Consequently, theteaching staffs of CRP departments were inadequate according to the TUPOBcriteria. However, the degrees of inadequacy were different. The third groupCRP departments were the most disadvantaged group according to all criteria.Results indicate that the TUPOB’s measures, which were a common mind study,have been not decisive in structuring the teaching staffs of the planningschools.

      Abstract: The European Union (EU), which wasestablished for the restoration of peace and prosperity after the Second World War,increased its members to 15 after the 1973, 1981, 1986 and 1995 enlargements.The EU, which included Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries in 2004 and2007 through the political conditionality and external incentive model,following the collapse of the Berlin Wall, became a regional and global actor,including 28 countries following the Croatia's membership in 2013. After thedisintegration of Yugoslavia, the Union commenced some initiatives, such as theestablishment of peace making and stability in the Balkans, reconstruction and confrontthe past for the region. The EU initiated the candidacy perspective to theWestern Balkan countries at the 2003 Thessaloniki Summit. In this article, weexamined which discourses, for what causes, and which legitimization tools wereused by the Union in its enlargement policy comparatively for the WesternBalkans and CEE cases. For this purpose, content analysis of the EnlargementStrategy Papers, Summit Declarations, and Parliamentary Decisions are conductedthrough the pragmatic, political-ethical and moral approaches, modelled bySjursen in a deductive method. It is observed that pragmatic discourses havebeen dominated over the possible gains of enlargement for both regions. Nevertheless,CEE enlargement is framed by a historical and political responsibility thatwould end the division; Western Balkan enlargement is legitimized as the way tocreate peace and stability through the spread of European norms & valuesand opportunities originated from the geographical location.

    • Authors: Özkan Adilhan; Levent Ünverdi
      Abstract: It is a fact acceptedby different circles that our country could not make much progress in thesubject of urbanization and that the process could not be managed much in adesired manner. Limited effect of our existing laws and regulations, especiallythe Construction Law numbered 3194 and the related regulations, on the spatialchange and transformation has revealed the necessity for including differenttools in the process.  However, the urbandesign concept takes the most fundamental and central place among thesetools.  Departing from evaluation of thelong-established and still ongoing-irregular urbanization which have stronglinks with the urban renewal processes in our country, this study dwells uponthe necessity to adopt urban renewal strategies in urban design,  The works carried out by the Municipality ofSöke have been selected as a unique case where urban design concepts are usedas effective tools in the planning process and contribute for directing andmanaging the entire process.  In works ofSöke Municipality, considering that solving the social and technicalinfrastructure and environmental problems must be evaluated primarily togetherwith the existing structural problems and that plan amendments on parcel scalecannot be of any remedy in planning decisions, the main strategy has been toobtain urban renewal-based development plans ranging from urban design scale toupper scales and the method in this strategy is through competition. In thisrespect, case of Söke appears unique in terms of strategy and method both.  In line with this, specific to the workscarried out by the Municipality of Söke, the ways of how urban renewal, urban design,and the related planning processes are managed has been explained and the concludingsuggestions address to not only on the problems occurred in this process, butalso possible ways of alternative solutions.

  • Terrorism As a Strategic Choice Terror Parallax

    • Authors: Oğuzhan Ergün
      Abstract: Therecent discussions on the narrow and broad definition of terror that havebecome a current issue in Turkey-EU relations and consequently created a friction effect in Turkey’s foreignpolicy development process have problematized a parallax between the parties that lacks solution in theinternational area. Changes in the position of the observer or facts sufferingvirtual slip by an uniaxial view are imposed with an interpretation madeaccording to that point of view. Terrorism, as an indirect behavior strategyimplemented throughout history by societies (relatively weak groups) that livein negative asymmetry, has turned into a dominant strategic behavior which thestrong groups resort to in the current hybridized war environment. Developmentsall around the globe have begun to be called as endless Global Civil Warstrategy. An important place in the emergence of a parallax in the view to anddefinitions of terrorism is held by not only partial strategic standing, butalso the issue being framed bypartial media as well as abstractions in legal and academic conceptualizationsor generalizations. In this paper, the ontology of Terror and Terrorism as aconcept is discussed in the context of strategy.
