Turkey's New Balance
Erdoğan’s Turkey is gaining respect as an indispensable player at both the regional and international levels. During the Justice and Development Party, or AKP, administration, Turkey has undergone many internal transformations, involving crucial issues such as the role played by the army, secularism and minority policies. But what are the still unresolved problems? And what are the objectives of the AKP government? In two interviews, ResetDoc posed these questions to two of Turkey's most respected and influential intellectuals, Soli Özel, a political analyst and professor of international relations at the Bilgi University and Kadir Has University in Istanbul, and Nilüfer Göle, a sociologist at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris.
