Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2016
This description of Yasar Adanali's work was prepared when Yasar Adanali was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2016.
Yaşar is the founder of Beyond İstanbul, centre for spatial justice, which reverses the currently negative eco-political, dynamics behind Turkey’s destructive urban development through knowledge production, awareness raising, and creating participatory models for different stakeholders.

Convinced that spatial policies could and should enhance social justice in the city, Yaşar identifies and opens ways for neighbourhood groups, architects, construction companies, municipalities and city planners to drive participatory urban planning processes and practices that take social, environmental and human rights concerns into account.
