Die Türkei vor den Wahlen

Sprecher:

Osman Can, Professor für Verfassungsrecht und Kolumnist aus der Türkei
Gerald Knaus, Vorsitzender der Europäischen Stabilitätsinitiative
Cem Özdemir, Bundesvorsitzender von Bündnis 90/Die Grünen

 

Am 12. Juni finden in der Türkei Parlamentswahlen statt. Der Vorwahlkampf zeigt, wie polarisiert die türkische Gesellschaft ist. Wie steht es um die Demokratisierung des Landes und den Schutz der Menschenrechte, gerade in Bezug auf Minderheiten? Welche Bedeutung kommt der geplanten Verabschiedung einer neuen Verfassung zu? Welche Rolle spielt der "tiefe Staat"? Von der Frage der nationalen Identität bis zur Rolle des Islams, von der Meinungsfreiheit bis zur türkischen Außenpolitik, beleuchtete die Veranstaltung die aktuellen Herausforderungen, die sich der Türkei stellen.

Thanks to him, ESI is able to show fascinating pictures of the Balkans: the facades of Tirana, the painted mosques of Travnik, the fabulous old houses of Plovdiv and the spectacular blue of water - dark in the Bay of Kotor, emerald in the river valleys of Bosnia, deep blue in Ohrid, twinkling in the Aegean Sea and on the Bosporus.
