The second issue of Alternatif. Political Analysis and Commentary (Heinrich Böll Stiftung Türkei) is out. Knowing that the refugee crisis will continue to be on top of the Turkish agenda, we gave it wide coverage: Feature articles seek answers to the situation in Turkey with a special focus on the current paradigm shift following the EU-Turkey summit on refugees in December 2015. From an alternetif perspective, we tried to look to the foreign policy agenda of the country with Jens Siegert’s article on the recent tension between Russia and Turkey, and to domestic politics alike through the interview with Bekir Ağırdır about the November 1 election results and the „surreal state of mind“ of the Turkish society. On the culture pages, we hosted Emin Alper and his recent film Abluka (Fenzy) which portrays the „bitter irony of reality“.
