The Rising Tide of Conservatism in Turkey

Ali Carkoglu,

The Rising Tide of Conservatism in Turkey

This book provides a study of the socio-political and cultural climate in Turkey in the aftermath of the Cold War, which resulted in a major voter re-alignment in the Turkish political system in the mid - 1990s. Except for a brief period of coalition governments, the country came under the rule of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), a conservative political party, which has been a coalition of pious Sunnis , liberals, Kurdish nationalists, former socialists, led by leaders from immaculate political Islamist backgrounds. Concomitantly, Turkish society has begun to experience increasing religiosity, authoritarianism, spreading lack of interpersonal trust and tolerance, increasing xenophobia, and anomie. The book delves into the sources of such a surge of conservatism, traditionalism, and parochialism in Turkey of the 1990s and 2000s. Data collected through nationally representative survey conducted in 2006 are analyzed to decipher the core driving forces of current Turkish society and politics in this book.
