The e-book "Migration Studies in Turkey from Gender Perspective" by  Sabancı University Gender and Women's Studies Center of Excellence (SU Gender) and Association for Migration Research (GAR) is available. 

We present the first book of GARKitaplık series, Avrupa Göç Çalışmalarında Nitel Araştırmalar.

We believe that one of the very first steps to improve the quality of migration studies in Turkey is to take methodology seriously. Accordingly, we organized “Methods and Ethics in Migration Research” certificate program with our members Cavidan Soykan, Lülüfer Körükmez and Polat Alpman in İstanbul, Mersin, and Gaziantep. Later, we decided to translate a methodology book in Turkish as the lasting outcome of this training. Our first publication, to this end, is the translation of the edited volume Qualitative Research in European Migration Studies (Eds. Ricard Zapata-Barrero and Evren Yalaz) in which 16 leading European scholars contributed.

This book approaches the issue of immigrant integration as a democratic justice problem. Based on Honneth’s recognition theory, it introduces the concept of ‘Just Integration,’ which challenges the capacity of the actual recognition order of the host society to include its immigrants as full members. The study criticizes the current political obsession to restore the social cohesion of the host society in the face of immigration.
