This is an analysis on the contribution of civil society to democratic consolidation in Turkey. This thesis will try to understand this problematic by assessing the civil society’s formal structure, legal framework, internal values and its impact during the consolidation process. The key aim here is to understand the civil society’s role as a contributor to democratic consolidation by mapping the civil society and democratic consolidation relationship in Turkey. While doing so, this study will base itself on a combination of theories that link the civil society to democratic consolidation with an empirical tool for the assessment of this linkage.
