Reverse transitology? Elections and political change in Turkey
Light lunch provided
Turkey has been going through a rapid reverse transition from an incomplete but resilient democracy to a contested authoritarian regime with fascistic aspects. Whether the election results of November 1st will make a difference depends on a set of factors including commitment to democratic process among Justice and Development Party decision makers, levels of intra-party discord and the availability of coherent political alternatives. Drawing on an appraisal these factors, Kerem Oktem will discuss the election results and their effects on domestic and regional politics, as well as on global security.
