Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Gezi Park Protest is the largest demonstration in the history of the AKP’s power in Turkey. This paper wants to see the protest not only from the surface but also from the roots of Turkish society. In an effort to meet this goal, the authors use theory, first, political cleavages and, second, social movements with a focus on collective challenges, political opportunity structures and framing. The method which used in this paper is qualitative research method, data collection using existing data methods. This study found that the PTG was not actually a protest against the urban planning policy of Taqsim Square, but rather a protest against the accumulated disappointment of the secular groups against Erdogan's government.
