Anglo-Turkish journalist Alev Scott explores the changes in Turkish society and the roots of the patriotism that characterises every Turk. Recent protests have uncovered the simmering tensions in Turkey, where the last decade’s economic success has been accompanied by autocratic rule by the religious Justice and Development Party. Middle Class Turks have begun to voice their protests, while the religious working class says things have never been better. Scott looks ahead to the future for a country that is very much in the public eye.

Scott was born in London to a Turkish mother and British father. She studied classics at Oxford before moving to Turkey in 2011. She taught Latin at the Bosphorous University before working as a freelance journalist for the British press.
