Panel Discussion on the consequences of this summer's attempted coup d'etat in Turkey.



On 15 July 2016, a coup d'etat was attempted against the Turkish government, which puzzled both the domestic and international audience. After years of civilisation and the weakening of the armed forces in Turkey, why did the coup attempt occur? Why did it fail? What are the links with the recent and more remote past between the military and politics? Can the past be looked at to explain today's predicament? In its aftermath, what kind of new alliances emerged and why? How are the events of July supposed to affect the future of the regime and the prospects of democracy in Turkey which was, once, considered as a ‚model‘ for the Middle East? This panel discussion will be followed by a more informal debate with Professors in the Pub.
