This course provides an overview of the conflicts that define the political consciousness of the contemporary Turkish society from the perspective of the conflict resolution field. These cases include the Cyprus, Kurdish and Armenian questions, Islam and Turkish Secularism, Modernization/ Europeanization and military-civilian relations.
