TESEV PROGRAMM II)
TESEV’s recent survey on “Definitions and Expectations Regarding the New Constitution” reveals significant results on society’s perceptions on the issues of the new constitution. The results of the survey, conducted with 2700 respondents can be found here.
Turkish Grand National Assembly and the political parties aim to finalize the process to prepare a new constitutional draft by the March of 2013, and we are now nearing the end of that process. This remains one of the most critical phases in the process, and there are lingering questions concerning the level of information and expectations among the public, public perception of the most contentious issues, as well as how and to what extent these are reflected in the draft text. As part of its Monitoring the New Constitutional Process Project, TESEV Democratization Program conducted a wide-ranging study throughout Turkey to be able to understand society’s views especially on those more contentious issues.
In neighborhoods and villages of various provinces and districts, a total of 2,700 individuals were surveyed by KONDA on behalf of TESEV, on their expectations, opinions and tendencies relating to the new constitution. The study includes analyses of the social, cultural, economic and demographic characteristics and political identities and preferences that influenced people’s responses.
