TURKEY AS A COUNTRY OF MISSED OPPORTUNITIES: A CALL FOR A MAJOR REVISION IN TURKISH POLITICS(24.05.2016)

Turkey as A Country of Missed Opportunities: A Call For a Major Revision in Turkish Politics

As Prime Minister Prof. Davutoğlu once said, Turkey is a country of opportunities. We keep missing economic, political and historical opportunities one after the other. Even worse, we keep blaming “others,” mostly western powers for all the bad things happen to us where in fact we ourselves are the ones who share the bigger part of the responsibility. We are the ones who could not change the Constitution for 14 years, we ourselves neglected EU “homeworks,” democratic-political reforms, we are the ones who started repeating the same old mistakes the ancient Kemalist regime had done for decades, we kept dragging in completing the reforms to permanently solve the...

The Making of the New Turkey: The Rule of Law is a ‘Sine Qua Non’!

TTIP and Its Possible Impacts On Turkey

Today, the EU and US are the anchors of the global economy. They represent about half of the global GDP and trade. They also try to establish the largest free trade zone in history via TTIP. It is obvious that TTIP will change the economic structures of both the EU and US, but furthermore the TTIP will impact third parties as well.

Modi Machine Moves on: India at its Watershed

Amidst euphoric hopes and subterranean worries, it may still be slightly early to pass a verdict on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s successes during his early honeymoon months, following a landslide electoral victory by his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
