Abstract

Two concepts of secularism are on trial in Turkey, where the Constitutional Court is studying a case to ban the ruling Justice and Development party (AKP). Whatever the outcome of the case, it will intensify the growing cleavage between the AKP and the secular establishment and hence have repercussions on Turkey’s already protracted bid to become a full member of the European Union (EU)
