Ear to Asia by Asia Institute, The University of Melbourne

Episode notes

Although the Kurds form a very sizable minority in Turkey, there is little tolerance for those who stray from the dominant Turkish nationalist narrative. So how have the Kurdish people navigated Turkey’s political environment in the hopes of achieving their aspirations? Kurdish affairs researcher Dr William Gourlay from Monash University and Asia Institute’s Turkish politics researcher Dr Tezcan Gümüş join host Ali Moore to examine the plight of the Kurds in Turkey.
