RETURNING HOME? AUSTRALIAN TURKS RELOCATING TO TURKEY

Returning Home? Australian Turks Relocating to Turkey

 

This research maps and documents the lives and perceptions of 20 second and third generation Australian Turks, which have relocated to back to Istanbul, Turkey.  These participants have decided to leave the country that they were raised in, and to go back to the country (Turkey) that their families had left in search of a better life.  Their stories show issues of multiculturalism and integration in cosmopolitan global cities, and the effects of brain drain and the failure to retain talent.
