Turkey: Between Ataturk and Islam?
© 2011 INSEAD Case Study

The case is an update of Turkey 2004, which received an ecch prize. It reviews the history, politics, business system, foreign policies of Turkey in a global setting.

Pedagogical Objectives:  This case is part of a rolling series of country cases on emerging markets. Each case is approached in one of a number of ways: if I teach policy process, we start with the whop-the key players), their rationale, the tools they use to promote their interests/purposes; the outcomes, and the feedbacks. If the focus is on the business system, I look at the culture, institutions and structure of the business system, in the context of the the state, the country's material conditions, and perceived history; and the physical and ideational external worlds.
