Description

Despite radical changes in Turkish politics since the transition to a multiparty system in the mid-1940s, the centre-right parties have consistently won an electoral majority. Why? How have they managed to maintain such a firm hold in the face of social cleavages that pit modernising, secularist state elites against a conservative and pious majority? Ergun Ozbudun uses the lens of Turkey's party and electoral systems to enhance our understanding of the country's polarised politics.show more
