Les entreprises turques d’Europe : intégration socio-économique de l’immigration et expansion économique

Turkish firms of Europe: socio-economic integration of immigration and economic expansion
Stéphane de Tapia
p. 101-112


With the dislocation of the Ottoman Empire, at the end of the First World War, a new nation-state, the Republic of Turkey, was born whose early years were marked by hypernationalism and a deliberate policy of self-sufficiency. Since then, an import substitution economy has moved toward one that seeks membership in the European Union. This shift began around the end of the 1950s when international migration of Turkish workers, access to foreign capital, and international tourism forced the Turkish economy to open up. A vast migration field in which Turkish emigrants maintained ties to their country of origin, but also themselves created firms in their new countries of residence, benefited both the migrants and the Turkish economy, especially through the establishment of customs agreements.
