This report by Cuma Çiçek is the first of a series of publications that focuses on various aspects of building a peaceful political process for the resolution of the Kurdish issue in Turkey. Guided by the questions of whether decentralization, considered in the context of power-sharing, can bring about political peace in Turkey’s Kurdish issue and what kind of promises it holds beyond the Kurdish issue, this research focuses on the 2013-2015 Solution Process and its aftermath to discuss the prospects and limitations of decentralization.
