The View of A Peace Researcher

A fundamental feature of a free and democratic society is the governments protection of the citizens freedom of speech and freedom of political expression. This includes the use of these freedoms to critisize gov't policy, religious authorities, and others. How can the Turkish gov't ever hope to join the EU if it feels it cannot withstand the pressures created by these core freedoms? Besides, history shows that stifling the voice of resistence will likely lead to increased violence.
