Independent and cutting-edge analysis on Turkey and its neighborhood

This issue of Turkish Policy Quarterly (TPQ) focuses on the democratic challenges Turkey faces on a wide range of policy issues, from the Kurdish peace process to the governance of the Internet, and from social policies to the implementation of rights for the disabled. As the general elections scheduled for June 2015 draw near, we also take up highly topical dimensions such as party financing, election monitoring, and the dynamics of political activism in various segments of society. Our authors assess the country’s tense political polarization, which is reflected in every sphere – from social media to public squares. As always, we tread a constructive line, stimulating critical debate, and providing perspectives from not only politicians from different parties, but also academics, entrepreneurs, practitioners, and grassroots activists with differing convictions.
