Liberty in Turkey: Past and Present

While covering demonstrations in Istanbul recently to mark the anniversary of the Gezi protests, correspondent Ivan Watson was shoved, kicked, and briefly detained during a live broadcast on CNN International. Unfortunately this illustrates all too well the deterioration of civil liberties in Turkey over the past year.

Gary S. Becker, In Memoriam

Is the future of Europe at stake in Paris these days? The country seems to be unable to rectify its deficit trajectory, endangering the European Union, given its size.
