Erdogan's  Regime as Competitive Authoritarianism

Turkey, which connects Europe and Asia, has a mentality more similar to that of Asia. Instead of adopting the democracy of the West, which is full of liberties, it has retained the “deficiency” of the Third World. As a result, it is a country where several Human Rights are violated.When we look at the history of Turkey – after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire – we can see a few mil... Read more

Equal attacks, unequal repercussion

We have been hearing several terrorist attacks recently. Unfortunately, not all the attacks receive the same attention from the world in spite of their serious consequences. The difference in paying attention to the attacks can be grasped through a comparison between some of them. Let's take for example, Paris attacks and Istanbul attack. As you might remember, Paris was exposed to ... Read more

Why does Turkey not belong only to Turks?

The territory which is called Turkey today is a land that has comprised diverse people since ancient ages. As Republic of Turkey was founded in 1923, it is better to mention the territory as Anatolia that is used specifically to refer to the Asian part of today's Turkey. Anatolia has been a region full of diverse nations - ethnically and religiously. In spite of the several invasions tha... Read more

Governance in Afghanistan - a victim of West's wrong strategy

When United Nations announced its plan for Syria, many of us might have remembered the countries for which United Nations or Western powers had had plans. Afghanistan is one of those countries for which West, mainly United States, had a plan of a 'good governance' that would entail a stable country. Was the plan successful? It is doubtful. Firstly, it is better to comprehend why there was a nee... Read more

A Suspicious 'Peace' Plan on Syria by United Nations

United Nations' Peace plan on Syria - a title that was covered in every media channels last week. UN Security Council approved a ceasefire plan for Syria which has been struggling with civil war since 2011. Doesn't UN's plan lead some questions in our mind? For instance, to what extend can someone believe that a plan by UN would end up 'peace'? And, why did it take so long to approve such a pl... Read more

Generalizing - Donald Trump's Solution to the Attacks

Generalizing - one of the most common mistakes we do in our everyday life. We do it mostly because we do not want to dig the problem and we 'generalize' instead of trying to find a solution. That was what Donald Trump did last weeks when he called the banning of Muslims from entering US. He chose the easiest option with regard to the fight against the terrorist attacks. He generalized all Musli... Read more

How does the east and west of Turkey differ?

Why was 2014 Catalan Self-determination Referendum considered 'illegal' by the Spanish Government?

Admitting a referendum 'legal' or 'illegal' depends on the countries and their governments – for instance Scottish Referendum was legal on the contrary of the Catalan one. Spanish government considered the Catalan Self-determination Referendum as illegal because it was opposed to the Spanish Constitution. A possible outcome of the referendum would mean an idependent state of Cata... Read more

It depends on the person to say if the Kurds should have an independent state or not. It is definitely a subjective issue.In my opinion this largest stateless people deserve to have their own country. Basically, they are totally a different nation - with their language, ethnicity, history and culture - though it is denied by the countries they live in such as Turkey. So, why do not they ...

Is the European Union failing?

Is the European Union failing? Can you answer?It is not the European Union that is failing but Greece. Subsequent Greek governments were just recklessly borrowing money from abroad building up a huge debt. Then their government agreed to fix the debt on the EU terms (slashing the welfare due to the spending cuts) and was also being given extra money from the EU to pay it off, ... Read more
