Nationalism and the Kurdish question: Where is Turkey heading?

What is going on in Turkey? Politics is becoming more conservative and the Turkish government has come to replace ethnic nationalism with Muslim nationalism. It has set up Islamic unity as the new dominant norm in Turkish politics and pressured Kurds to become a part of this hegemonic identity.
Arda Güçler, researcher at the Department of Government at Uppsala University, will in this lecture reflect on the foreign policy implications of Muslim nationalism and the Turkish state’s approach towards the conflict in Syria. He will show that this is an example of the AKP government’s neo-Ottomanist ambition to become the new hegemonic power in the region.
