dc.description.abstractThe study analyzes the history and destiny of the Ahiska Turks, a Muslim Turkic-speaking nation historically living on the territory of Meskhetia in present-day Georgia. The primary subject of the study is the period after their deportation to the USSR in 1944 and the reintegration policy pursued by the Turkish government to return them to their homeland, Türkiye. The analysis covers three key periods: before the deportation, the period in the Soviet Union, and after its collapse, including all the events leading to the return of Ahiska Turks to their historical homeland. The purpose of the study is to understand why the Turkish government did not attempt to return the Ahiska Turks to their homeland during the Soviet Union and only started to implement this policy in the 1990s.
dc.description.abstractBu araştırma, tarihsel olarak bugünkü Gürcistan'ın Ahıska bölgesinde yaşayan ve Türkçe konuşan Müslüman bir millet olan Ahıska Türklerinin tarihini ve kaderini incelemektedir. Çalışmanın temel konusu, 1944 yılında SSCB'ye sürgün edilmelerinden sonraki dönem ve Türk hükümetinin onları anavatanları Türkiye'ye geri döndürmek için izlediği yeniden entegrasyon politikasıdır. Analiz üç temel dönemi kapsamaktadır: sürgün öncesi, Sovyetler Birliği dönemi ve Sovyetler Birliği'nin dağılmasından sonra Ahıska Türklerinin tarihi anavatanlarına dönmesi. Çalışmanın amacı, Türk hükümetinin neden Sovyetler Birliği döneminde Ahıska Türklerini anavatanlarına geri döndürmeye çalışmadığını ve bu politikayı ancak 1990'larda nasıl uygulamaya başladığını anlatmaktır.
