The Germany-Turkey Migration Corridor: Refitting Policies for a Transnational Age

Date published



This new report by the Migration Policy Institute examines the factors behind an increasingly complex migration between Germany and Turkey. It focuses on the development of German-Turkish migration over the last decades, explores the reasons for this development and discusses possible policy implications.

"Who is moving, and why? How have the labor market, German immigration policy, and Turkish diaspora policy affected (or been affected by) migration movements of nationals between the two countries? What could both countries do to take better advantage of the unique resources of this transnational population?" These are some of the questions the report seeks to answer.
