Within a conceptual framework characterized by production, space and migration, this article studies the sectoral role of ethnic labor in the global cities. The study analyzes the urban-sectoral participation of Turkish labor and generalizes this for the global cities of Western Europe. After the reunification of East and West Germany, the sectoral transformation in Berlin, its emerging global city functions and the economic role of ethnic labor constitute the main analysis areas here. In the beginning of the 1990s, the participation of Turkish labor in the labor market of Berlin is discussed in two areas: occupational characteristic and business status.

Key Words: Labor Migration; Ethnic Labor; Global City.
