On multiple different measures of polarization, Turkey today is one of the most polarized nations in the world.¹ Deep ideological and policy-based disagreements divide its political leaders and parties; Turkish society, too, is starkly polarized on the grounds of both ideology and social distance.² This chapter focuses on the bases and manifestations of polarization in Turkey, the main reasons behind its increase, and its ramifications for the future of democracy and governance in the country.
