Contested Reproduction of Turkey’s Financialized Capitalism:
State and Society in Crisis
Dr. Pınar Bedirhanoğlu, Visiting Professor, Department of Politics, York University; Associate Professor, Department of International Relations, Middle East

Ross Building South 674, York University
This one-day workshop brings together Turkish scholars to engage in a critical and in-depth discussion on the current authoritarian drive in Turkey. The workshop will problematize the following salient issues: the constitutive role of financialization in authoritarian state transformation; state policies that weaken the power of labour vis-á-vis capital; and the enhancement of the coercive capacity of state and capital for social control. Besides identifying the Turkey-specific determinants of authoritarianism, the workshop aims to situate the Turkish experience within its global context, and thus contribute to relevant debates in comparative politics.
