Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the most recent plans for the development of a framework in which return was supposed to take place, namely the village-town (koy-kent) and the center-village (merkez-koy) models. These plans are discussed from an institutional perspective, as attempts to reorganize rural space in the conflict areas. The chapter argues that different state institutions have different spatial strategies, i.e. they think differently about the organization of rural space. It also argues that the institutional thinking of civil institutions may be grouped under the general heading of a rehabilitation doctrine. The center-village model, laid down in the Village Return and Rehabilitation Development Plan, straightforwardly considers the evacuations of small rural settlements as an opportunity for designing a more promising settlement structure. Both of the models, village-town and center-village, were considered as tools for the development of a new settlement structure, eventuating in a modernization of the region.
