A recent survey provides an interesting insight into Turkish attitudes to foreigners, women and more.

A recent survey titled “Who Are We?” provides an interesting window into Turkish attitudes to foreigners, women and more.

The article, as featured in the Guardian newspaper as well as the Turkish press, tries to highlight the growing pains of this relatively new democracy and the progress as it transforms to modern EU norms.

However, these don’t seem like the Turks we know many of whom are sophistocated, educated, embracers of new technology (when was the last time you saw a Turk without the latest mobile phone) and friendly to foreigners.

We wonder therefore if attitudes are different in other parts of Turkey?

Well we’ll need to wait until the report is published in English shortly to find out.
