Integrations of Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services: Opportunities, Difficulties and Expectations

Abstract

There are many Institutions and Ministries working on social welfare directly or indirectly, aiming to provide better life conditions for all citizens in Turkey. Although the center of the social policies is the newly founded Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services, the Ministry needs to work in cooperation with other public institutions and voluntary organizations in order to fulfill the tasks given. An effective way of coordinating the services provided by diversity of institutions is using integration opportunities presented by information technologies. Aim of this paper is to expose the key points and the problems of interagency information sharing and integrations in social service welfare besides the benefits, from the perspective of MoFLSS members.
