Turkey at a Crossroads @ Sala Triaria, Villa Schifanoia

The Migration Working Group and the Muslim World Working Group

In power since almost 15 years – first as Prime Minister and then as President of the Republic – Recep Tayyip Erdogan has never hidden his yearning of the Ottoman Empire’s greatness and his aspiration to turn Turkey into a regional power, befitting its historical depth and economic flourishing development. Attempts to concretize this project, however, have each time further threatened Turkish democracy. The recent amendments to the Constitution, which aim to reform Turkey’s institutions towards a greater concentration of power in the hands of the President, now appear as the last move to legally consolidate Erdogan and the Justice and Development Party ’s solid grip on power. So how was this transformation in Turkish politics made possible?
