By 2008, the war in Iraq had become more unpredictable than ever and the change in the US administration started a period of uncertainty about Turkish-American relations. Turkey at the time was going through a period of political turmoil as well.
It was a time when sharing the most basic newsbit on Turkey on social media was perceived as a political stance. We did not want to risk our publication and our readers labeled as partisans to any one political ideology.
As a cautionary step, we suspended our publishing work in 2008 and focused on branding and marketing services for the International Turkish Community.
"Turkuaz gradually became an international name and a welcoming platform for Turkish Expats worldwide. I can only be proud to have initiated such an influential movement."
Flying to more countries than any other airline, Turkish Airlines treats you to a delicious cuisine, extensive inflight entertainment and plenty of legroom on your way to the legendary turquoise waters of your "Turkish Therapy".
We bring you a list of published content on the lives of Turkish Expats around the world.
Turkuaz is the premier source of community news, celebrity interviews, fashion and lifestyle of International Turks around the world.
The mission of Turkuaz is to provide an ongoing forum in which Turkish Expats can connect, share and inspire one another.
Since its first issue in 2002, Turkuaz has evolved from a community-oriented quarterly in San Francisco, to a cultural publication in the US, and now a digital video-magazine that caters to the collective experience of Turks living abroad.
