IASR Lecture by Dr Mahmut Mutman

The recent coup in Turkey has put the Turkish Islamism on the agenda again. The roots of Islamism go as far as the 19th century. Although it appears to be an issue of cultural and religious difference, Islamism cannot be taken in isolation from global social and economic processes.

Particularly focusing on the nature of recent Turkish Islamism, this lecture argues that it brings to the fore fundamental questions of modern politics such as the concepts of people and freedom.
