Abstract: Values serve as guiding moral principles, which shape human behavior and therefore are of high importance in the study of the human attitudes (Rokeach, 1973; Kluckhohn, 1951; Hofstede, 2001; Schwartz, 1992). Certain attitudes towards social issues are said to be determined by values (Rokeach, 1973). Therefore, simultaneous analysis of the individuals’ attitudes towards certain acts and the values these individuals hold may have explanatory power in the studies on human behavior. In this study, the relationship between individuals’ attitudes towards petty corruption (specifically, accepting a bribe on duty) and values held by these individuals were examined. The purpose of this study is to investigate the extent to which values are related to a greater tolerance towards bribery on duty. The samples for this study were generated from cross-national survey data, which was collected by Dr. Rengin Firat and her colleagues in 2015 at the University of Lyon. The results of this study may carry theoretical importance for the scholars in the fields of economics and behavioral studies, and policy-makers.

Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Main argument of this paper depends on the determining the conditions of petty commodity producers in entering relations to a transnational retail market (Carrefour) and a national corporation (Pinar) in a village of Turkey. I would like to learn these conditions from villagers of Bugduz by conducting in-depth interviews that a village in the province of Eskisehir.
Villagers are very eager to sell their products to those corporations without problematizing the conditions of the market. The class structure of villagers is totally different from the customers of both corporations. As a matter of fact, food products of Pinar have always been the representative of secure and healthy food with high prices. Furthermore, customers of Carrefour have always been from the middle and upper middle class part of the society.
In Turkey, rural people consume diversity of local brands that have not seen in national and international retail markets. Farmers enter both traditional and contemporary market relations for protecting themselves from being unpropertied and poverty.

Abstract: This paper introduces two concepts in order to identify the role of the emerging middle powers such as Turkey, India, and Brazil in the contemporary international relations: “petty imperialist powers” and “franchisee imperialism”.

The argument is that, unlike the traditional middle powers, these emerging middle powers act with the motives of imperialist powers of the late 19th century, while they also comply with the political constraints set by the Western Bloc. Lacking resources to become a ‘great power’, they strive to expand their influence in their region with aggressive trade policies (albeit, usually with labor-intensive commodities), extensive direct investment (albeit, usually with the financial support of multi-national corporations), and direct involvement in their neighbors’ domestic affairs (albeit, usually in collaboration with Western countries).

This mode of relationship between the emerging middle powers and the Western Bloc justifies the analogy about the tense relations between bourgeoisie and petty bourgeoisie at the domestic level. As today’s petty bourgeoisie now acts as the franchisees of the bourgeoisie, petty imperialist powers pursue their regional interests as the franchisees of the Western Bloc. Thus, older theories of imperialism can be replaced with a new perspective of ‘franchisee imperialism’, which effectively distinguishes between traditional and emerging middle powers.

The paper, then, analyzes Turkey’s new position in its region with a focus on the direct investment by Turkish companies in the Greater Middle East, the involvement of Turkish military in foreign operations, and the changing discourse of the current government about its foreign policy orientations.

"The Types of Corruption and Democracy: Does Democracy Reduce Grand or Petty Corruption?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Southern Political Science Association, The Hyatt Regency New Orleans, New Orleans, Louisiana, Jan 09, 2014 <Not Available>. 2019-06-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p699123_index.html>

Abstract: Although the basic distinctions and typologies of corruption – such as grand and petty corruption – have been mentioned in the literature, they have not been elaborated on nor measured empirically. Typically grand corruption is considered a major obstacle for development as it affects the central functions of the government and policy making (Rose-Ackerman 1999, Jain 2001). Petty corruption is often overlooked. In this paper, I expand and develop the distinction between grand and petty corruption and apply this typology to one of the unresolved questions in the corruption literature, namely the effect of democracy on corruption (Treisman 2007). I measure grand and petty corruption using questions on grand corruption from the World Economic Forum WEF Executive Opinion Survey 2004-2010 and through ratios of bribe-giving using questions from the TI Global Corruption Barometer 2006-2010, respectively. Using an original panel dataset, I find no support for a linear, quadratic, lagged or differenced effect of democracy on either grand or petty corruption. However, quintile regression reveals that among the most corrupt nations, greater democracy reduces petty corruption. Grand corruption is not affected by democracy levels independent of the quintiles of corruption levels. These findings have significant implications for prioritizing democratization efforts in the countries with substantial petty corruption, as this type of corruption can be reduced by strengthening democratic institutions.

Abstract: Prior research on the consequences of imprisonment for the family suggest that that incarceration of so-called petty offenders is most harmful for families -- yet few studies provide a clear description of who is and is not a petty offender and how best to make such distinctions. We compare various ways of categorizing inmates (using convictions, pre-prison family involvement, and a variety of traits related to criminality) in order to better understand heterogeneity in the consequences of incarceration for the family.
