A new publication from our member Buğra Güngör named “Foreign aid during the COVID-19 pandemic: evidence from Turkey” has been published by the journal Southeast European and Black Sea Studies.
In his article, Güngör underlines that Turkey supplied medical aid to more than 70 countries during the first months of the pandemic. In his investigation on the dynamics of foreign aid, Güngör argues that historical ties, imports from the country, the state of the health system and Turkic identity were critical in Turkey’s aid decisions. Moreover, his article also concludes that there is no statistically significant relationship between foreign aid Islamic affinity.
