This book brings together various analyses that portray how various social movements are changing the citizenship regime in Turkey. This is a change that is transforming the state-society relations that are critical in the achievement of societal peace. The analyses included in this book describe how the issues pertaining to Kurds, Alevis, Romanis, women, LGBT groups, economically poor people, the youth, environmentally conscious, and Afro-Turkish community are bringing about denationalization of citizenship in the Turkish context. While the existing analyses focus on how the European Union accession processes have been triggering such a transformation, this book is distinguished by virtue of shedding light onto the transformative impact of such social movements. -- Ayse Kadioglu, Sabanci University, Istanbul This book is long overdue. Well-crafted and timely, it will appeal to those scholars, experts, and students who want to know more about the transformation of the Turkish social landscape. Rather than focus on the conflict between Islamists and secularists, Donmez and Enneli challenge us to consider diverse societal forces and identity-based social movements. The result is a deeper and richer understanding of the societal landscape of Turkey. There are two main features of the current normative conflict in Turkey: disputes over different lifestyles and the search for legitimacy, and the deepening clash of values between the political elite and the masses. The book not only provides a new interpretation of the origins of the current normative conflict, but offers new ways of addressing these conflicts. -- M. Hakan Yavuz, University of Utah
