LOOKING FORKA2 PARTNERS: PROJECT TITLE:LOOKING AT THE FUTURE WITH HOPE AND HARMONY

An Erasmus Plus KA203 project proposal, investigating political socialization of Turkish Youth who were born, grown up and studies Bachelors' Degree in Germany, Austria and Belgium is offered under the coordinatorship of Sakarya University, Faculty of Management and Turkic World Research and Application Center. Within the scope of the project, the problematic ground and aims of the research were identified, then it was turn to find out research population and foreign partners that are convenient to the research sampling. In this regard, Germany, Netherland and Austria were chosen as research population of this project. While choosing the sample in the research, it was important for the above-mentioned universities to host the most-populated Turkish student groups in Federal Germany and Austria. There is no doubt that politicization of an individual is a significant stage of his / her socialization. This stage can be regarded as a dynamic process in which a politicized person is shaped. It can be easily put forward that the aforesaid process briefly starts in family and continues to develop with the introduction of other socialization factors such as school and political participation environment. The content of a life-long political socialization is comprised of political interest and knowledge, political values and attitudes, citizenship knowledge, political participation form and its levels. The current project aims at analyzing and measuring political socialization types of Turkish students who study at the EU member countries at Bachelor’s Degree. Furthermore, this project focuses on dealing with the above-mentioned students’ political participation forms and comparing all these issues with the similar examples in Turkey. Within this framework; Turkish students at Bachelor’s Degree, who were born in Germany and Austria and whose political attitudes and values were shaped under the effects of these EU member countries with reference to European values, will be examined thoroughly. Also, it will be measured what kind of political participation forms these students display after a given political socialization process. Besides, the present project aims at figuring out the main factors affecting the above-mentioned Turkish students’ political socialization, their political participation forms and their attitudes towards democratic values. In this project, participation concept will be discussed at three levels, which are political participation, financial participation and participation to civil society. Under the scope of this study, it can be detected whether Turkey or Germany and Austria are more dominant while shaping the students’ political culture. The current study will enable the researchers to examine the sample student group’s expectations and participation to social and educational life in the countries they live in. It is also one of the parameters to be examined in the study whether these students wish to return their homeland and what their perceptions are about their homeland. In the evaluation of the aforementioned parameters, it will be an important output to figure out the political relations between Turkey and Germany / Austria and what kind of participation tools are effective while building these relations, namely political socialization network. The obtained data will be significant indicator to measure the used political socialization agents, interiorizing democratic culture, standards of judgement about the institutions and actors of democracy, trust level to political system, criticism and demanding. It is also believed that all these participation opportunities and forms will enable us to make necessary recommendations about the Turkish students’ integration and adaptation to the society they live in. The reason behind choosing Germany and Austria as sampling in this study is that these countries have similar cultural background and Turkish people in these countries are more densely populated compared to the other EU member countries. It is a well-known fact that there are more than six million Turkish citizens living abroad and 5.5 million of them live in Western Europe. The immigration story of Turkish people started in 1961 to Germany, then continued to Austria in 1964 with the labor force agreements. In this regard, Germany and Austria can be accepted as the countries which are fruitful to reach the samples that are convenient to the research population of this project.
