Political Culture and the Experience of Constitutionalism in Turkey

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Turkey has been undergoing constitutional revolutions and reforms since the late 19th century. Constitutionalists argue that limits must be set to the power of the government whereas the government or the ruling majority advances their power or hinders civilian’s rights. This paper examines the two main discussions surrounding all five constitutions and changes between 1876 and 2017, namely the scope of authority and mechanisms of legislation and civil rights.
