On 6 August 2012 we’ll continue with Turkey-Greece relations, but this time not with a Greek working in Istanbul but with a Turk from Istanbul working (mainly) in France. Our guest will be Samim Akgönül, historian and political scientist who works as a professor at Strasbourg University and as a researcher at the French National Center for Scientific Research. His main research field are religious minorities, non-Muslim minorities in Turkey, Muslim minorities in the Balkans and New Minorities in Western Europe. Akgönül has published numerous articles and books on these issues. His most recent publication is “Turks and Greeks” (Turcs et Grecs) in French. We’ll discuss the main arguments of this new publication and more in general Turkey-Greece relations and minority issues in Turkey.
You can listen to the program live on 6 August 2012 at 10.30am Turkey time both online and on 94.9 if you are in Istanbul or vicinity or later as an mp3 on the following this page :
