In this dissertation, open-systems theories concerning organizational emergence, development, and coexistence are employed to generate research themes that explain the EPO landscape in the Turkish clothing industry. These themes are explored through a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods, including

(1)250 face-to-face surveys of Turkish clothing exporters;
(2)in-depth interviews with over 30 EPO and government officials, foreign diplomats, and academic experts;
(3)a focus group of industry leaders and EPO founders;
(4)a content analysis of over 50 newspaper articles from the Turkish press;
and (5)an analysis of secondary industrial and foreign-trade statistics.

The findings of this study suggest that EPO emergence; structure, access, and use are embedded in Turkey's social fabric. Social context variables;including the social roles and expectations of the government, private sector, and elites; social stratification among social classes; and the intensity and parameters of social capital within society and among subgroups— affect EPO emergence and development.
These issues also shape exporters'
(1)awareness of EPO services,
(2)perceptions regarding the degree of access they would have to EPO services, and
(3)EPO service use.
