At Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, EU-Office 09h00 09h15 Coffee and Registration Welcome remarks and Introduction Andrä GÄRBER, Director, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung EU office Fikret TOKSÖZ, Director Good Governance Program, Turkish Economic and Social Studies Foundation (TESEV) 09h30 Panel 1: Constitutional process, Kurdish question and the justice sector For the first time in its history, Turkey is formally in the process of drafting a civil constitution based on the will of the people. While some question to what extent that will is represented on a parliament elected on the basis of the highest electoral threshold in Europe, others defend the legitimacy of this parliament on the basis of the record high turnout in the general elections of June In the meantime, the Kurdish question remains unresolved; the basic rights and demands of the Kurds remain unmet, and thousands of Kurdish politicians and activists remain detained upon remand on terrorism charges. Many wonder: Will Turkey be able to write a new constitution, after all? How will be the demands of the Kurds reflected in the new constitution? Introductory Inputs by Mehmet UÇUM, Constitution Working Group Initiative, Turkey Vahap COSKUN, Dicle University, Diyarbakır, Turkey Can SELCUKI, Researcher, Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) 10h15 11h00 Open debate with EU representatives, policy and decision makers, experts around the table chaired by Koray ÖZDIL, TESEV Democratization Program Coffee Break 11h30 Panel 2: Decentralization Debate and the New Constitution In the context of the constitutional debate in Turkey, TESEV has set up an advisory board of experts and intends to prepare a constitutional draft focusing on the local and regional government aspects of it. This draft will be based on concepts like subsidiarity, pluralism, participation, transparency and efficiency. Two members of this Advisory Board will present the preliminary proposals giving reference to the problems and opportunities about local and regional government, and would like to discuss it with European partners. 7
