When state of emergency becomes the norm

Since the State of Emergency (OHAL) was declared in Turkey on July 20, 2016, a total of 30 State of Emergency Executive Decrees (KHK) comprising 1194 articles in aggregate, were issued, leading to over 1000 amendments in national legislation. Most of these amendments, which are in no way related to the reasons prompting the declaration of the State of Emergency, introduced changes in order to restructure state-society relations in such diverse areas as national defense, internal security, state personnel regime, economy and social security, administrative structure, education and health. This report analyzes all up to now issues executive decrees under the State of Emergency with a view towards shedding light on the profound and dramatic changes that these are meant to bring about in the country's political, social and economic structures and relations.
