Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

To date in Turkey’s young democracy, core pillars of the democratic process have largely been left to the mercy of political parties and state institutions, while the participation of civil society and the population at large, other than through voting, has been limited in comparison. This lack of involvement is particularly paradoxical given the diverse and complex nature of Turkey’s demographics, requiring a strong web of institutions for a stable democratic system. Grassroots movements, such as Oy ve Ötesi (Vote and Beyond), must and will play a critical role in creating the much required momentum in civic engagement towards strengthening core pillars of Turkey’s democracy.
