The workshop is called: Unpacking ‘the Opposition’ in undemocratic regimes: The Role, Transformation and Challenges of the Oppositional Actors in Turkey and beyond

The purpose of this workshop is to initiate a debate on the opposition in Turkey and contribute to the theorization of the role, transformation, mobilization strategies and different forms of the opposition in undemocratic regimes. 

The growing scholarly interest in de-democratization and the emergence of several forms of hybrid regimes has created an extensive literature on the institutional erosion and ‘liquid regimes’, the monopolization and constellations of the executive power and the political economy of hybridization across the world. However, the role and the changing forms of the opposition(s) under the process of autocratization remains undertheorized.
