Habitat II Debates and Social Transformation in Istanbul

The problem of housing and shelter was discussed in the global Habitat II conference held in İstanbul, June 3-14, 1996. Before and after this international conference, the city of Istanbul underwent an extensive transformation featuring both its social and spatial repercussions. In this study, the contemporary tendencies in both urban politics and urban ecology are primarily discussed, and consequently the history and the content of the Habitat conferences are summarized. Within the framework of these topics, the social and the economic transformation of Istanbul, and the contemporary tendencies in housing policies are critically considered. The existing literature about the subject is evaluated in the text, and a selective bibliography about Habitat II is presented in the conclusion.
