SUITS Senior Scholar Murat Somer on the Kurdish Settlement Process (and other things)

Murat Somer, Senior Visiting Scholar at The Stockholm University Institute for Turkish Studies, has been busy lately. He has a new article in Foreign Policy magazine on current developments in Turkey and what the EU could do to move things in the right direction. Read it here.

Murat also has a forthcoming book on the Kurdish issue in Turkey, which addresses the challenge of reformulating "Turkishness" in the Turkish constitution, among other topics. Alas, the book will be in Turkish, but if you happen to be in Stockholm on the 28th of January you can come hear the author talk about his book and offer his analysis of the ongoing attempt to settle the conflict between the government and the PKK. See the flyer and link below.
