The protests that started in Istanbul’s Gezi Park in June 2013 spread across Turkey. They signify a clash between a modernising Turkish society and a still rigid and old-fashioned political system. The protests resulted in the tragic loss of several lives and endangered Turkey’s hard-won economic stability as investors took fright. But they might force the government to reconsider its rejection of pluralism. And they might even help to revive Turkey's moribund accession process to the EU.
