Turkey reforms: meet the new Erdogan

Will the real Recep Tayyip Erdogan please stand up? Accused of harbouring an increasingly authoritarian bend, Turkey's prime minister has reached out to opponents with major reforms to promote diversity, allowing civil servants to wear the headscarf. François Picard and his panel discuss the "new" Erdogan and how democratic his reforms are.

  • Gianni CARTA, Journalist and Political analyst;
  • EMRE DEMIR, Editor, Zaman France;
  • Kendal NEZAN, President of the Kurdish Institute of Paris;
  • Vehbi BAYSAN, Assistant Professor of History and Middle Eastern Studies at Yeditepe University.

Programme produced and prepared by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Dheepthi Namasivayam and Christopher Davis.
