Yes, We Can! Toward a Brave New Turkey

Turkish journalist Mustafa Akyol addresses the complex tensions between cultural and political [...]modernization in Turkey in the 2009 Campagna-Kerven Lecture on Modern Turkey. As a society that has always admired Western culture and political ideals, Akyol argues, Turkey may now be better equipped than most Muslim countries to embrace religious pluralism - but not if the country's growing nationalism trumps its sense of tolerance.

Hosted by The Campagna-Kerven Lecture Series on Modern Turkey on April 15, 2009.
