    Authors:Danışman, Gamze Öztürk; Tarazi, Amine
    Publisher and Date:(Routledge Journals, 2020)
    The Great Recession of 2007-2009 piqued the interest of policymakers worldwide, prompting various initiatives to stabilize the financial system and advance financial inclusion. However, few studies have considered their interconnectedness or whether any synergies or trade-offs exist between them. This paper investigates how financial inclusion affects the stability of the European banking system. The findings indicate that advancements in financial inclusion through more account ownership and ...

  • Informed trading, order flow shocks and the cross section of expected returns in Borsa Istanbul 

    Authors:Tiniç, Murat; Salih, Aslihan
    Publisher and Date:(Routledge Journals, 2020)
    This paper examines the relationship between information asymmetry and stock returns in Borsa Istanbul. For all stocks that are traded in Borsa Istanbul between March 2005 and April 2017, we estimate the probability of informed trading (PIN) to proxy for information asymmetry.? Firm-level cross-sectional regressions indicate a statistically insignificant relationship between PIN estimates and future returns. Moreover, univariate and multivariate portfolio analyses assert that investors that hold ...

  • "Life is a state of mind' - on fiction, society and Trump 

    Authors:Diken, Bülent; Laustsen, Carsten Bagge
    Publisher and Date:(Routledge Journals, 2017)
    The article undertakes an allegorical double reading of Being There and Trump as instances of what we call socio-fiction. Crucially in this respect, reality and fiction are not two opposed realms. The two realms always interact in subtle ways, which is why cinema can be a resource for diagnostic social analysis. We first articulate a general commentary on the relationship between cinema and society, introducing the concept of socio-fiction'. Secondly, we analyse Peter Sellers' Being There, an ...

  • The making of the 'new woman': narratives in the popular illustrated press from the Ottoman Empire to the new Republic (1890-1920s) 

    Authors:Hiz, Gürbey
    Publisher and Date:(Routledge Journals, 2019)
    The genre of social narrative was prominent in the printed press of the Ottoman Empire to the early Republic of Turkey (1850s-1920s). The ideological narratives disseminated through the periodical press were influential in the establishment of a new, changing society and social space. Starting in the second half of the nineteenth century, both male and female writers debated the position of women within the changing public setting. Various articles by various authors with various aims constructed ...

  • Terror as potentiality - the affective rhythms of the political 

    Authors:Diken, Bülent; Laustsen, Carsten Bagge
    Publisher and Date:(Routledge Journals, 2018)
    The paper addresses the ways in which the cultural, the affective and the political intersect, counter and/or feed upon one another in the context of contemporary terror. Initially, building upon Machiavelli and Hobbes, we deal with the political significance of terror (and the fear it provokes), emphasizing its potentiality, which inscribes future within the present. Then we turn to an analysis of terror in the prism of securitization. Terror, in this respect, amounts to de-materialization (the ...

  • Turkey's rapprochements with Greece and Armenia: Understanding path breaking steps 

    Authors:Öztürk-Tuncel, Duygu; Çelikpala, Mitat
    Publisher and Date:(Routledge Journals, 2019)
    This comparative analysis considers the Turkish-Greek rapprochement and the Turkish-Armenian rapprochement processes with a three-dimensional approach. Although the deep-rooted conflicts between neither Greece and Turkey nor Armenia and Turkey were resolved via these processes, the bilateral relationships between the countries have significantly differed. This paper argues that two key main reasons lie behind this difference: the nature of the initiatives taken during the two processes and the ...
