Turkish law has undergone drastic changes over the last 15 years. Indeed, new laws have been enacted and several laws have been amended to modernize and bring Turkish legislation in line with the EU acquis communautaire. This book aims to provide an overview of the current Turkish public law. It aspires to serve as a blueprint not only for foreign students and academics, but also for international law firms and organizations. Great care has been given to incorporate the most recent legislation, court decisions, and statistical information. This second edition particularly covers the recent legislative amendments to the 1982 Constitution.
This book includes twelve chapters and covers Fundamental Elements of Turkish Constitutional Law, Human Rights Protection from the Perspective of the 1982 Constitution, Administrative Law, Administrative Jurisdiction, Criminal and Criminal Procedure Law, Tax Law, Taxation System, Public International Law, Other Issues of International Law and Turkey's Legal Position in Related Matters, Legal History, and Philosophy and Sociology of Law.
