Conn Hallinan joins the show to explain the political situation in Turkey, where President Recep Erdogan has been consolidating power away from the parliament and into a strong executive. The problem, explains Hallinan, is that a groundswell of Kurdish voters has wrested local control from Erdogan in lots of municipal elections, and after having campaigned partially on an anti-Kurdish nationalist platform, Erdogan might now have to make nice with them in order to get anything done.

Discussed on the show:

  • ““Revenge of the Kurds”: Erdogan’s Missteps Are Piling Up” (FPIF)
