Abstract:     
People from Turkey have been major participants in international migration for more than three decades. Hundreds of thousands have gone abroad since the early 1960s, particularly to Western Europe, but also, to a much lesser extent, to Australia, and later, in larger numbers than to Australia, to Arab countries, and more recently to the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). This essay discusses trends and patterns in migration from Turkey to Arab countries since the late 1960s. It relates this migratory movement to the wider context of Turkish emigration. By examining the ongoing migration ties between Turkey and the receiving Arab countries, the paper concludes with a discussion of likely migration flows and their implications

Keywords: Turkish migration, contract migration, Arab countries
