Turkey in Transition (?): Before and After the Attempted July Coup

  by: :
Description
The failed coup d’état in Turkey can be analyzed in many ways, especially in relation to continuities and discontinuities in Turkey’s 21st century politics, society and economy. Some scholars argue that the aftermath of the July coup revealed even further the authoritarian character of the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and its party, the AKP (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi/Justice and Development Party), and opened the way to enhance his own powers more. Other scholars argue that Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s policies signal the rebirth of the Turkish nation, or Yeni Türkiye (New Turkey) as it is often referred to. With this conference we attempt to address the above issue and explore the extent to which the coup d’état constitutes a turning point in modern Turkey, or it is used, to reproduce older paradigms.
We invite submissions on the following, but not limited, related topics, and we encourage contributions from all related fields (history, politics, sociology, and anthropology):
  • Factors and consequences of the July 15 coup d’état
  • AKP rule and opposition parties
  • Political regime change
  • The ideological aspects of the AKP's strategy
  • The role of religion and religious communities
  • Turkey in a “state of emergency”
  • Left politics and social movements
  • The Kurdish question
  • Legal aspects
  • Turkish foreign policy (esp. in relation with the wider Middle East)
  • Neoliberalism and state (re)-formation
  • Refugees-Immigrants and the EU
  • Gender
Keynote speakers:
Joost Lagendijk, Political Analyst and Publicist
Hamit Bozarslan, EHESS, Paris
Prof. Joost Jongerden, Wageningen University
