One of the founding members of Club Alpbach Turkey, Dr. Selin Akyüz was the speaker of the Seminar “Women and Migration” organised by the Asian Studies Implementation and Research Centre of Gedik University. Dr. Selin Akyüz, who is an academician at the Advanced Research Centre of Bilkent University, stated that the biggest mistake that we made while examining the causes of migration, its different processes, consequences and effects was to create stereotypes. She talked about how imposed or forced migration effected men and women in different degrees and ways. She laid down the legal framework regarding the legal status of refugees in Turkey, then shared her experiences and women stories that she witnessed during her field work in Gaziantep.
