The fundamental purpose of this thesis is to understand the birth and rise of Youth Party (YP) and its political stance. In order to achive this task, the transformation process of Turkish politics in the post-80 era will be assessed first. That discussion will attempt to highlight main aspects of the transformation. Then the case of YP in the context of post-80 Turkish politics will be analyzed. The analysis of YP will include both descriptive and critical accounts in order to widen the research and locate the position of YP in Turkish politics more properly. The main conclusion of this study is that YP is trying to capture the ‘new center’ through an exclusive neo-liberal approach in contrast to its seemingly radical attitude.
