Your Call: The fall of the Turkish Model

1200x630bf.jpg

On the February 24th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with UC Berkeley sociologist Cihan Tugal about his new book “The Fall of the Turkish Model: How the Arab Uprisings Brought Down Islamic Liberalism.”

 Five years ago, the west hailed Turkey as a viable model for fusing Islam with capitalism and democracy. Today it’s being criticized for cracking down on freedom of expression and its role in Syria. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest:

Cihan Tugal, associate professor of sociology at UC Berkeley, and author of The Fall of the Turkish Model: How the Arab Uprisings Brought Down Islamic Liberalism
