Turkey reforms: meet the new Erdogan (part 2)
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.
