G. Research Topics

1. Structural Adjustment Programmes and Government Budgets
Structural adjustment programs implemented by international organizations provide financial support to countries. These supports have effects on national economies and state budgets. Although these effects are positive at the beginning, they often cause countries to remain financially dependent on foreign sources in the long run. In addition, it may lead to the adoption of laws and decisions determined by foreign analysts that may be wrong for the country.

2. The impact of privatization on North Cyprus economy.
The privatization process started late in Northern Cyprus compared to the rest of the world. Although it is possible to explain this situation for different reasons, it is important to examine the economic effects of the privatization efforts, which have gained importance and accelerated today. It is especially important to examine the effects on macroeconomic indicators and the state budget.
