Turkey reforms: meet the new Erdogan (part 2)

Will the real Recep Tayyip Erdogan please stand up?

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.
