Il colpo di stato del 15 luglio 2016 e la democrazia in turchia: Una prospettiva storica e costituzionale. – Giacomo Fantini

ABSTRACT: In light of both the attempted coup of July and the upcoming constitutional referendum of April, the article analyses the century-long intertwinement between military interventionism and constitutional reformism in the Republic of Turkey: in particular, by investigating the different causes and numerous consequences of this connection, this article aims at outlining not only how the Turkish military has slowly built and then slowly lost its political role but also, more broadly, how this complex process has shaped the Turkish constitutional framework.
