ELIAMEP working paper analyses AKP’s domestic policy

photo vivliaTwelve years since its rise to power, Turkey’s ruling Party of Justice and Development (AKP) has focused its attention to the implementation of a “grand project”, planned to boost AKP’s, its leader’s and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s dominance in Turkish politics. This “grand project” is the adoption of a new constitution, which will establish a presidential system of government. Since his election, as President of the Turkish Republic, Erdoğan continuously seek new political allies in order to gain and gather support for a new constitution. One potential ally could be the Kurds. Alternatively, nationalists could also help Erdoğan re-affirm his own dominant role in Turkish politics.
