The Turkish elections in June are one of the most consequential in Republican electoral history, says Richard von Weizsäcker Fellow Soli Özel. Will AKP win the sufficient majority (330 seats) to change the constitution? Will the Kurdish nationalist HDP pass the electoral threshold (10%)? What would a four-party parliament mean with regard to Turkey’s political system? How likely is the ongoing move of Turkey in the direction of electoral authoritarianism?
Together with Soli Özel we would like to spend an interactive evening discussing possible scenarios of the Turkish election results and respective consequences especially for the Kurdish political movement and Turkey’s position in the international context.
By invitation only.
