The Plot Against the Generals: G├╝lenists, intellectuals and the fraud that transformed Turkish polit

LSE European Institute public lecture

A massive court case against Turkish military officers relying on evidence that is now widely acknowledged to have been forged enabled prime minister Erdogan and his then ally, the Gülen movement, to consolidate their power over the secular old guard. Drawing on his personal connection with - and first-hand experience of - the case, Professor Rodrik shines a light on how an apparently democratizing society found itself in a wild frenzy where fact and fiction became virtually indistinguishable.

Dani Rodrik (@rodrikdani|) is the Albert O. Hirschman Professor in the School of Social Science of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and Centennial Professor at the LSE European Institute. He has published widely in international economics and globalization, economic growth and development, and political economy. He is the author of The Globalization Paradox (Norton, 2011) and One Economics, Many Recipes (Princeton, 2007).
