Turkish diaspora

The Turkish diaspora refers to ethnic Turkish people who have migrated from, or descend from, the Republic of Turkey or other countries that were once part of the former Ottoman Empire. Therefore, the Turkish diaspora is not only formed by people with roots from mainland Anatolia and Eastern Thrace, rather, it is also formed by the Turkish communities which have left countries in the Balkans, the island of Cyprus, the region of Meskhetia in Georgia, and the Arab world.
