Economic Survival Strategies of Turkish Migrants in London

Foreword by Steve Jefferys

Economic Survival Strategies of Turkish Migrants in London by Olgu KARAN.

"This study is about economic survival in the Turkish and Kurdish communities of North London with some interesting comparisons to the longer established Turkish Cypriot community. It is to be welcomed that the study spans macro and micro levels. Also to be welcomed is that it eschews the idea that identity and culture is fixed and unchanging, providing some fascinating and important examples to the contrary, and that it moves beyond essentially culturalist approaches to entrepreneurship and even more so, mainstream individualist ones."
Professor Theo Nichols, Cardiff University, UK

"Dr Karan noticed that two ethnic communities in conflictual relationships with each other in home country (Turkey) are marshalling collective resources in a very cooperative way across ethnic boundaries and forming small business ventures and thus contributing to the empowerment and upgrading of their households and communities."
Professor Bahattin Aksit, Maltepe University, Istanbul
