Literature on the Population of Istanbul in the Republican Era

This study focuses on the demographic structure of Istanbul within the framework of three periods. The first is between 1923-50 when the new state dealt with many political and economic problems; the second falls between 1950-80 when there was a heavy migration from rural areas into large cities and an upsurge in problems related to agricultural economy and the final period extends from 1980 until today, when liberal economic models were applied and the social and political problems intensified. The literature in question has been selected from those specifically focusing on different aspects of the population of Istanbul. The literature on the demographic structure of Istanbul between 1923-1950 largely deals with the increase in population in line with urban developments and the problems of construction and settlement. The studies on the period between 1950-80 increased in both quantity and diversity together with the inclusion of fields such as geography, sociology, economics, anthropology and law. The central debates of the period revolved around topics such as problems of migration and adaptation to the city, industrial districts shaped by migration, demographic composition of Istanbul and its districts and the constituents of the population of Istanbul on a macro scale. Since 1980, studies have focused on the relationship between capital and setting, rapid increase in population, migration, urbanization and urbanity, urban poverty, children working in the streets and juvenile crime.
