Feminist critique of neoliberalism in the Middle East and North Africa

The feminist economy first emerged in the early 20th century, with an emphasis on the impact of gender on the weakness and fragility of early industrial transformation. Because of the traditional division of labour, where men tend to work in paid jobs and women do unpaid work at home, women are economically weaker and more vulnerable. Although work has been class (keeping in mind that working-class women do not have the well-being to live without work and according to interdependence (so-called parental contract), there was no real recognition of unpaid child care in economic well-being- and it was easier to replace and and it was easier to replace and cancel in the event of a family breakdown.

Turkey and the Mediterranean Imbroglio Peace and Security - The story of an aspiring regional power

Turkey’s assertive and militarized foreign policy have reached their limits in the Eastern Mediterranean, and as of late 2020, Ankara is seeking ways to exit its self-imposed impasse. From a Turkish perspective, the EU should strike a balance between the needs of its associate member, Turkey, and its full members. The recent conflicts and crises in the region intensified anti-EU sentiments in Turkey, and the public has lost interest in the EU membership process. The prevalent sentiment in Turkey is that the EU is backing traditional foes of Turkey, which eventually plays into the hands of nationalist forces in the country. Turkish society needs to see that the EU has a balanced approach and assumes a fair attitude. The EU cannot face losing Turkey, and the EU is too critical for Turkey to lose.
