        Every news story about the Kurdish Question includes the boiler plate statement that o people have died in Turkey’s internal conflict since , but conveniently omits the fact that most of them have been innocent Kurds killed by their own government. Turkey currently is witnessing a series of events that are most likely to go down in history as truly important milestones. The country is attempting to tackle the age-old Kurdish question. Thus far, the peace process has given rise to more hope than ever. Yet, it .

      Vahdettin Ince is a Kurdish writer, translator, politician and former TV presenter at state-owned TRT Kurdi in Turkey. A longtime member of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP.   Banned poetry and the Kurdish question only two Latin-script Kurdish books had been printed in the world. His book was the third. Today, the Kurdish people are divided between Turkey.

      The Kurdish question has been one of the most highly debated issues in Turkey for the last few decades, if not earlier. Although researchers and observers have analyzed nearly every aspect of the issue, new publications about the Kurdish question continue to appear.   Turkey now faces the uncertain consequences of continuing and controversial single-party (read Erdoğan) rule. Turkey faces many burning questions, but I’d like to focus here on the most central one—the overarching Kurdish question and its direct links to the fate of Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Turkey .

Unfortunately, no good. In Turkey, where the Kurdish question is an issue of national significance, and in Iraq, where the gains made by the Kurdistan Regional Government have allowed it to impose its authority, moves are afoot to solve ‘the Kurdish Question’ once and for all.

It is a timely work enabling to look at the Kurdish question in Turkey from the perspectives of both past and present, from the eyes of both. The Kurds are the fourth largest ethnic group in the Middle East, numbering between twenty and twenty five million. Approximately fifteen million live in contiguous regions of Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Syria, an area that they call Kurdistan, yet they do not have a country of their own.

Formal attempts to establish such a state were crushed by the larger and more powerful countries in the region. I was intrigued to find that many people did not know what the Kurdish question implied. The Kurdish question is a term widely used in reference to the fact that Kurdish people do.

Doğan Koҫ, “The Hizment Movement and the Kurdish Question,” Understanding Turkey’s Kurdish Question, eds. Fevzi Bilgin and Ali Sarihan (New York: Lexington Books, ), pp. Neophytos G. Loizides, “State Ideology and the Kurds in Turkey,”. The Kurdish–Turkish conflict is an armed conflict between the Republic of Turkey and various Kurdish insurgent groups, which have demanded separation from Turkey to create an independent Kurdistan, or to have autonomy and greater political and cultural rights for Kurds inside the Republic of Turkey.

The main rebel group is the Kurdistan Workers' Party or PKK (Kurdish: Partiya Karkerên.Turkish Hezbollah (TH) (Turkish: Türk Hızbullahı), also known as the Kurdish Hezbollah (Kurdish: Hizbullahî Kurdî ‎) or just Hizbullah in Turkey, is a predominantly Kurdish Sunni Islamist militant organization, active against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) (mainly in the period between and ) and the Government of Turkey.

The group, founded by Kurdish-Turkish Islamist. Both at the beginning of the book and in his conclusion, Unver argues that the failure to resolve the Kurdish question in Turkey is closely connected to the misdefinition/poor definition of the problem.

Thus, a strong idea that he promotes is that once the Kurdish question is properly defined, the likelihood of resolving it will increase.
