The Justice and Development Party (AKP) is now engaged in a political struggle with the country’s secular establishment, and the outcome is unclear. Western governments had hoped the party’s leaders could create a model of governance for Islamic parties in the Arab world. But how does this play in the Arab world? What happens now that Turkey’s constitutional court has moved to oust the government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and close down the country’s biggest and most successful political party? Representatives from the region discussed these and other related issues at a press briefing hosted by The Century Foundation and the Heinrich Boell Foundation.
