Turkey state of emergency

In an attempt to shore up stability and bolster security, Turkey has declared a state of emergency as it recovers from the chaotic aftermath of the coup attempt nearly two weeks ago. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his cabinet can now bypass parliament in passing new laws, and limit or suspend rights and freedoms as they deem necessary. Some fear this new decree will deal another blow to the country’s already weakened economy. Hua Liming from the China Institute of International Studies, Joshua Walker from the German Marshall Fund, and Pieter Cleppe, the Head of the Brussels office of Open Europe discuss what these new changes might spell for Turkey’s future.
