Dialectical Relation Between Syrian Migrant Identity and Sense of Place: The Case of Istanbul

By considering the dialectical relation between city and migrant's identity, I am trying to understand the effect of Syrian settlements on both Turkish and Syrian Identities. The aim of the research is contributing urban and migration studies at the same time with sociological imagination. Research is based on Qualitative methods.
