Description: The paper presents an overview of the recently created regulatory agencies in Turkey and assesses their formal (statutory) independence using a standard index. Independent regulatory agencies are characterized by organizational features that are very different than those of the traditional bureaucratic structures in Turkey. The independence scores calculated for Turkish regulatory agencies indicate that most of them were granted considerable operational and financial independence when they were created. Assessing their independence characteristics provides valuable insight on how the course of liberalization that Turkey started on at the beginning of 1980s have played itself out in the area of regulatory policy.
