Turkish Justice and Development Party (AK Parti) Reformist Path
This book deals with the AK Parti’s reformation strategies since the beginning of their governance in 2002 with a major emphasis on:
- AK Parti’s new political orientations aiming at promoting political participation, which could be achieved through giving some space to the field of public freedom, calling for democratization and respecting human rights.
- AK Parti’s gradual neutralization of the military institution, not to mention its neutral strategies used in dealing with social, educational, and economic issues, which were successfully achieved.
- Turkey’s opening up to the neighboring countries alongside with the AK Parti’s effort to take advantage of Turkey’s historical legacy.
This ideological shift has led to: raising the numbers of people supporting the AK Parti and proving its trustworthiness as a party succeeded in reforming the country.
