Article: The Failure of Democracy in Turkey: A Comparative Analysis

Just published: Lauren McLaren and Burak Cop (both University of Nottingham), "The Failure of Democracy in Turkey: A Comparative Analysis" ("Government and Opposition: An International Journal of Comparative Politics", 46 [4], October 2011: pp. 485-516).

Quote: "Although Turkey took its initial steps toward establishing democracy in 1950, it has thus far failed to become a fully functioning democracy. ... The article ultimately contends that despite the EU's attempt to push Turkey towards full democracy in the modern day it is unlikely that it will become a fully functioning democracy".
