For these reasons, these structures need to be protected and transferred to future generations. Undoubtedly, one of the most important events that damage historical buildings is the earthquake. Today, the effects of the earthquake can be predicted through various programs in computer environment. In this research, finite element model and analysis of the masjid part of Hasbey Dar’ül Huffazı, which is one of the structures of Karahanlılar Period, located in the center of Konya and built by Mehmed the son of Hatıplı Hacı Hasbey in 1421 (H.824), was performed in SAP 2000 program. Two different loads are defined on the model. The first one indicates constant loads and the second one indicates the effects of ground movements described in the earthquake spectrum specific to Konya. As a result of the analyzes, the earthquake behavior of the historical building was examined.</em></p> 2019-10-31T00:00:00+03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## THE ESTABLİSHMENT AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE CİZRE CİTY 2019-11-08T23:27:15+03:00 Diyar KARADEMİR <p><em>Cizre city, located in the Tigris section of the Southeastern Aantolia Region, has maintained its importance since its inception.Topography, climate, water resources, farmland, transportation and security factors have played on important factor in the establishment and development of the city. The city has been the scene of important events in the past because of its location and a result important wars occured between the states wishing to dominate the city. In peace times, the city had made great progress and became an important trade center. Cizre city has been an important city in terms of commercial activities since it is at the crossroads of the trade route which comes from the North through Diyarbakır and Mardin to Mosul. The terrorist incidents that began in the 1990’s had a significant impact on the spatial development and demographic structure of Cizre city. There were massive migrations from rural areas to the city and as a result neighborhoods such as Nur, Sur, Cudi and Konak emerged after 1980&nbsp; and they were populatedafter 1990 rapidly.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; In this study, the establishment and development phases of Cizre city were determined and geographical factors that provide continuity of the settlement were emphasized. According to some sources, the present urban features of the study area which has a settlement history of 4000 years are also discussed. Discussing Cizre’s urban development and functional features will contribute to more realistic planning of the city.</em></p> 2019-10-31T00:00:00+03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## INCLUSIVE EDUCATION IN MULTICULTURAL ENVIRONMENTS IN EUROPE AND THE BALKANS 2019-11-08T23:27:26+03:00 Vedat BAJRAMI <p><em>The paper is a result of a research of education systems, systems of support, legislation and evaluation of positive practice in the nine countries of the European Union and three countries in the Balkans: Montenegro, Macedonia and Kosovo. The condition for the research countries to be included in the sample is based on the population number not being larger than 8 million.

The McDonaldization suggests that four key elements can be applied to achieve<br>more positive results: efficiency, computability, predictability and control. However, besides these<br>four elemets there are also irrational elements which are critical. Sports media has also become a part<br>of the rationalization process because it is a popular media type of popular culture. In this study, it is<br>claimed that Socrates magazine and Socrates magazine youtube channel, which are parts of sports<br>media, are compatible with McDonaldization princibles and explained with examples. Content<br>analysis was conducted during the study period and a meeting was held with Socrates journalist Erman<br>Yaşar.</p> 2019-10-31T00:00:00+03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## AN EXAMPLE OF CERAMIC STUDIOS IN MUNICIPALITIES: BALIK PARK CERAMIC STUDIO 2019-11-08T23:27:44+03:00 Tuba KORKMAZ Sultan Sevda KILIÇ <p><em>City, county, maintenance of streets in residential areas, such as the parish, cleanliness, lighting, water, receiving public services such as control of trades and an important role municipalities in Turkey which plays in local government, especially on the occasion of the head from the head through the selection of constitute a big importance for the peoples would.

Certain of these workshops also include ceramics. However, ceramics workshops are usually not preferred by municipalities because of their financial expenses. One of the best example of these is the ceramic workshop of Kepez Municipality of Çanakkale.
