Globalization entails challenges, opportunities and realities. The multiplying flows of goods and capital are grounded in the global extension of the free market and fostered by the neoliberal doctrine of economic liberalization and rationalization. Global economic forces limit States in their ability to independently determine economic and social policies. One of the defining ideals of the European Union has been its social support system, often referred to as the European welfare state. But the European welfare system is under pressure. In the other hand, both the national public institutions’ searching for new solutions and Turkey’s legal reform efforts on its way to European Union membership have an important role. Like other welfare regimes, Turkey’s welfare regime displays new tendencies signaling a new period. This article is aimed at analyzing of the recent social policy reforms and dynamics in Turkey in the framework of the welfare state transformation. Keywords: globalization, welfare state, social policy,Turkey
