Religious Party Supporters in Turkey

(p.283) Chapter Six Between Laicism and Islam?
Beyond Sacred and Secular
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the supporters of religious parties in Turkey. It highlights the inconsistency of voters' characteristics with models which assume that religious parties can be understood as battlegrounds of a secular-religious conflict. The chapter explains that the supporters of the Nationalist Action Party, the National View Party, and the Justice and Development Party do not universally support political projects derived from Islam, and do not tightly cluster around certain religious values.

Keywords:   religious parties, Turkey, voters' characteristics, secular-religious conflict, Islam, religious values, Nationalist Action Party, National View Party, Justice and Development
