Social Protection and Values: The Case of Turkey (2019_2_40_005)


This research examines the impact of social protection policy on social values in Turkey. We argue that social protection policy changes social values through redistribution and clientelism. We chose Turkey for a case study, as this country expanded its social protection policy in the 2000s. In particular, the research addresses (1) the perception of rights and benefits by citizens as associated with social protection, (2) the relative impact of objective and subjective well-being on incumbent support, and (3) social values that determine support for social protection.
