World Affairs Council webinar, erosion of Turkish democracy

Wednesday, May 20, 12-1 p.m. Zoom conference. Turkey once had emerged as a poster child for the successful marriage of Islam and democracy. However, in the aftermath of the July 25, 2016, coup attempt and the controversial referendum of 2017 that gave Recep Tayyip Erdogan unchecked powers, Turkey has become an authoritarian state. Lately, opposition parties have scored stunning victories in local elections. Politicians have now established new parties to attract voters away from Erdogan's base. Presentation given by Dr. Halil Yenigun, lecturer at UC Berkeley department of sociology, specializing in contemporary Muslim political thought, Middle East studies, and Turkish politics.
