Von Atatürk bis Erdogan. Religion und Politik in der Türkei
On 6 December our Senior Researcher Markus Dreßler successfully started the KFG's series of public lectures with his talk on Religion and Politics in Turkey. The lecture Von Atatürk bis Erdogan. Religion und Politik in der Türkei gave an overview of the continuities and discontinuities of religious politics in Turkey. Markus Dreßler showed the development of the national and public attitudes towards religion and religious communities from the establishment of the Republic of Turkey in 1923 until the recent past.
Finally there was a vivid discussing with the audience, especially about Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's current politics on religion.
Markus Dreßler's talk was the first one of a series of public lectures that will give insights into the current research of the KFG "Multiple Secularities - Beyond the West, Beyond Modernities" - or deal with the latest developments in regions for which the KFG assembles expertise through its fellows. These lectures will usually take place at the Café Alibi and are open to the public.
