Assistant Prof. Dr. Osman EROGLU

This article seeks to explicate organizational fields which have been undergoing change especially during in Justice and Development Party’s (Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi, AKP) single-party government since 2002, in relation to a dominating institutional logic in Dicle University.
