Event Details

The School of Social Sciences is pleased to invite you to the "Islam, Populism and Regime Change In Turkey" book launch, which will take place 20th November 2019, between 5 and 7pm in TM3-03.


Dr. Ahmet Erdi Ozturk, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at London Metropolitan University, alongside Prof. Dr. Hakan Yavuz from University of Utah USA and Dr. Nil Mutluer from Humbold University Germany, will release the book entitled "Islam, Populism and Regime Change in Turkey".


About the book

Islam, Populism and Regime Change in Turkey is an updated version of a Southeast European and Black Sea Studies special issue on Turkey’s transformation. This edited volume  explores the role of religion (Sunni, Hanefi Islam) in the transformation of Turkey under the reign of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi, AKP). All of the chapters argue that the Turkish understanding of secularism was also one of the building blocks and the constitutive elements of Turkey’s modernization until the rise of the AKP. Currently, however, it seems that religion has become a new or re-born element of the new Turkey and has been transforming many areas such as: the media, the Kurdish issue, implementation of the rule of law, foreign policy and gender issues. This book therefore aims to scrutinize the question: how does a religion-based transformation in Turkey influence the raison d’etat of the state, and effect in various ways different areas such as gender, foreign policy, economy and socio-political relations of various power groups within the society?
