going for FA[edit]

Going for FA; add refs, pictures, timeline, wikisource texts etc.. Here it comes!!!!!!! Without law, we are nothing but a pack of animals Alexis de Tocqueville :))) Baristarim 07:02, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

I will add the timeline sometime tomorrow.. This article was proposed to be deleted?!? Baristarim 08:52, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
archived, coz the article has undergone a huge rewrite, and those discussions are no longer relevant Baristarim 20:00, 5 October 2006 (UTC)


The article has political far leftist intrusions added by a particular abberation of non-Turkish origin functioning as a zealot under the pretense of an editor whose primary goal is to opiniate all articles related to the Turkish governmental structures and should be read with pertinent awareness.

?? Was this aimed at me? I hope not.. Baristarim 20:19, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:ConstitutionalCourtTurkeySeal.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:ConstitutionalCourtTurkeySeal.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The Economist Intelligence Unit’s index of democracy - Turkey:'hybrid regime'[edit]

http://www.economist.com/media/pdf/DEMOCRACY_INDEX_2007_v3.pdf

It is notable that Turkey's government is considered an "illiberal democracy" (as opposed to an advanced democracy) or a 'hybrid regime' according to The Economist Intelligence Unit’s index of democracy(http://www.economist.com/media/pdf/DEMOCRACY_INDEX_2007_v3.pdf), in large part because of the human rights (of minorities), civil liberties ('anti-turkishness' law, burka and beard bans-those who have them are second class citizens) and other issues. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.19.14.37 (talk) 23:19, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

I can gurantee you that the burka and the beard (regretably) are not banned. Well they officialy are under Ataturk's principles concerning cloathing and there are laws to administer it. However the banns do not actualy take place, for example; one can see many people with Burkas and other such cloathing in any part of Turkey. The notion those that have them are second class citezens is actualy quite false. In real life, those that don't are treated as second class. The reason being Turkey is being ruled by a party that has deeply engrained Islamic sentiments.Tugrulirmak (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 08:56, 3 September 2011 (UTC).

Language issue[edit]

The Turkish constitutional principle of not allowing the teaching of other languages as first languages in schools to its citizens, other than the official one, is similar to the policies of Germany, France and Austria, all members of the European Union. It contains explicit requirements in the field of education.

Unfortunately this does not hold, if one checks List of official languages by state, there's more than one official language in Austria, and Germany has no official language!

Going further, there's European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, ratified by almost all European countries, notably not by Turkey. Turkish language policy is similar only to French, promoting only one official language.

New Constitution?[edit]

I know politicians are attempting to create one. This would seem to be deserving of some discussion. --RedHouse18 21:01, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

They have given up trying to change it. Jzlcdh (talk) 18:11, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
