Dr. Özge Zihnioglu (Lecturer in Politics)

The deteriorating political environment has considerably narrowed the space for civil society activity in Turkey. However, the mass mobilizations in recent years showed not only the ongoing willingness but also the activist groups’ ongoing capacity to collectively defy, resist and contend. This article focuses on this capacity and analyses how activists act strategically to retain this capacity during abeyance.
