Will Kurdish politics transform?

The failed process known as the “reconciliation process” was, in a sense, the product of an internal transformation in the Kurdist movement. The roots of this transformation can be traced all the way back to the day PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan was cap... more

The DAESH and Kurd cards

My opinion that the real determining players of the Middle East deadlock are not the powers involved is getting stronger. The line between Russia, Iran and the PKK and the congestion between Turkey, and the tensions at this point, do not explain the ... more
