Istanbully: What Does Erdoğan Want?
“When Erdogan came to power in 2002 he was a different man, or so he said.”
“Erdogan appealed to segments of the country that would traditionally be reluctant to support an Islamist leader.”
“Institutions do not matter in today’s Turkey.”
“Turkey is a problematic partner for the West, but important in the Ukraine crisis.”
“If Turkey held free and fair elections today, Erdogan would lose.“
