Abstract

In the information age, countries that are considered to be developed owe their technological and economic advancement to their investments on human resources. Positive values that emphasize humane characters such as knowledge, skill, experience and dynamism are seen as human capital. These values, by ensuring more effective use of other factors used in production, increase the rationality in economic activities and enable the national economy to develop faster. Development plans have become much more important and necessary due to the multidimensional and rapid transformation, intensifying competition and increasing uncertainties. Turkey in the EU accession process attaches high importance to the human capital factor in its development plans due to the high density of young population it has. The aim of this study is to evaluate the human capital element in the framework of development plans which have been prepared by Turkey, a candidate of EU membership, from past to present. In this study, human capital element has been evaluated on the basis of the ―education sector‖ that is considerably important due to its positive impacts on the development process. As a result of the comparisons between the EU and Turkey, the necessary steps and suggestions to be followed by Turkey as regards to human capital establish the scope of this research.
