Abstract

There has been a meteoric surge in academics migrating out of Turkey in the last five years. Many scholars have found new careers in Britain, which previously had a relatively small community of Turkish scholars. Drawing on a systematic and narrative review, this paper provides a scoping review of the fragmented literature on the Turkish academic community in Britain and its possibilities of forming a supportive academic diaspora. Building on the literature on academic diasporas and evidence from national surveys, we question whether the Turkish academic community could develop an academic diaspora in Britain. We identify the boundary conditions, current networks, categories, definitions, antecedents and consequences of the diaspora and the possibilities of creating a federation supported by supranational and national agencies to build bridges across Turkish academic diasporas in Britain.
