Turkish State Discourse on Dersim 1937-38

Cover of the book "The Kurds in Erdogan's "New" Turkey"

CMES researcher Pınar Dinç has authored the chapter "Dersim 1937–38: Shifts and continuities in the state discourse and reasoning under Kemalism and Erdoğanism".

Pınar's chapter is part of the edited volume The Kurds in Erdogan's "New" Turkey: Domestic and International Implications (2022, editor Nikos Christofis). The book focuses on the AKP government since 2002, during which time the state’s approach to the Kurdish Question has undergone several changes. It stands out with the main objective to avoid any ‘policy-oriented bias’ through an interdisciplinary and multi-thematic approach.

The volume discusses the state and policies in the Kurdish region of Turkey, as well as counter-hegemonic discourses that seek to reform existing institutions. Some chapters focus on the domestic aspects and gender perspectives of the Kurdish Question in Turkey, which focus has been taken over by recent developments in Syria and the Middle East in general. Other chapters include a range of new aspects of Turkish society and politics, and the international aspects of Ankara’s policies and its implications not only inside Turkey but also internationally.
