What happens in a multiethnic and deeply polarized society that turns authoritarian? Can people from different ethnic, religious, and ideological groups coexist? What do we know about electoral violence in competitive authoritarian states like Turkey? How do pro-government vigilante groups see themselves and members minority groups? What is the relationship between paramilitary groups and the government, and how has that evolved? What lessons can we draw from track-two diplomacy and the failed peace process between the state and the PKK?

These and more questions are examined in a new special issue of the journal South East European and Black Sea Studies. Join the editors and two of the contributors for a live conversation about violence and coexistence in Turkey.
