Summary/Abstract: Conflicts, tensions, discomforts, dissatisfaction and frustration over resources and representation are feeding into the perception of human insecurity around the world (see Sirkeci, 2003, 2006; Sirkeci and Cohen, 2016). These individual level insecurities meet national level insecurities and securitisation of migration and migration policy is simply a, somehow inevitable, side effect. Turkey, once known as a source country for mass labour migration, is now firmly placed on the map of immigration destinations marked by over 3 million Syrian refugees and about half a million refugees from other parts of the world. The country has also been in the receiving end of sizeable numbers of returnees and immigrants from the traditional destination countries of Turkish emigrants such as Germany as a result of emerging cultures of migration over these corridors (Cohen and Sirkeci, 2011; Sirkeci and Zeyneloglu, 2014).
