Welcome to Turkuaz Republic!

Turkey's "Brain Drain" for over six decades resulted in an expat population of over 7 million Turks in more than 70 countries. 

With 3 million Turks living in Germany alone, this invisible population - larger than many countries in Europe - struggles with all the constant speculation of their dual citizenship.

There are some that feel like they belong to "both", while some say they belong to "neither". The pain of not being able to identify with any one land or people causes integration woes and that's where this platform comes in.

In an effort to bring together this invisible population we built a virtual republic online, on these very pages, to help ourselves connect, share and inspire one another. Feel free to join our mental travels by visiting our communities.

CAMPAIGN

on Change.org

Our multi-citizenship status is facing 'agent-terrorist' smear campaigns in Turkey. Our most accomplished are accused and detained for years over unfounded criminal charges, as in the cases of Deniz Yucel, Ayla Albayrak and Osman Kavala. Join our "Justice for Turks" campaign and sign our petition on Change.org
