Perspectives Turkey 9: Turkey's Democracy between two Elections

Catch me before I fall

This issue features two special dossiers: the democracy dossier analyzes the current situation and strategies of significant political actors towards the Presidential elections. The second one is a gender and macroeconomy dossier, which hopefully would provide an introduction to a gendered reading of macroeconomic issues in Turkey, who will be hosting the G20 summit in 2015. As usual the issue covers foreign policy, ecology and culture topics with very interesting articles.
