Abstract: The article discusses the causes of Turkish emigration, its directions and its dimensions; and it distinguishes the main phases of Turkish emigration to North American and Western European countries in the 20th century. The late application of the concept of Turkish Diaspora is what makes its definition difficult. Attempting to explain, and to differentiate between, the concepts of Turkish Diaspora, Turkish People, and Turkish Native made it easier not to deviate from the object. At the same time, inaccuracies of demographic data caused some complications, especially in view of the fact that these data included not only ethnic Turks, but people of other ethnicity residing in Turkey as well. In the course of determining and reviewing the situation of the Turkish diaspora, its features, activities, and forms of community, organizational, and religious life, the article attempts to reveal the history of the Turkish diaspora in the USA, Canada, Germany, France, and the Netherlands. This article of review and analysis needed to be written, not only because of the shortage of research, in Lithuania and in the Lithuanian language, on Turkish emigration, but also because the number of Turkish residents in Europe and North America is constantly increasing. Seeking to answer problematic questions, the article identifies the factors that led to the Turks‘ emigration and their settling in foreign countries, the conditions under which their diaspora took shape, and their efforts to foster their own cultural identity in the lands to which they emigrated
