(p.251) Conclusion
The Making of Modern Turkey

Uğur Ümit Üngör

Oxford University Press

The Conclusion draws together the main strands and threads of the arguments and moves towards a synthesis. It discusses the effectiveness of Young Turk population policies and draw conclusions about nationalist homogenization in the modern world. It propounds that a clear continuity can be observed between the Ittihadist regime of 1913–18 (the Committee of Union and Progress), and the Kemalist regime of 1919–50 (the Republican People's Party) in cadre and population policy. It further argues that from 1913 to 1950, a relatively coherent ‘Young Turk’ regime subjected Eastern Turkey, an ethnically heterogeneous space, to various forms of nationalist population policies aimed at ethnically homogenizing the region and absorbing it in the Turkish nation state.
