Gezi Report


June 2014

This report aims to present a comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the Gezi protests, a significant milestone in the history of social movements in Turkey, by investigating who the people at Gezi Park were and how the Gezi Protests were perceived by the general public.

The data employed in the report were collected via the Gezi Park survey conducted in Gezi Park on June 6-8, 2013, with 4411 participants, and the field survey conducted for the KONDA July’13 Barometer1 on July 6-7, 2013, with 2629 participants in 28 provinces, where respondents were carefully selected to represent the overall distribution of the adult population in Turkey. Other data referenced in the report were compiled from various other field surveys carried out for KONDA Barometers.

This report is divided into three sections. The first section is the presentation report for the Gezi Park survey, titled “Who are they, why are they there, and what do they demand?”2 that was released to the public last year, with the aim of presenting the similarities and differences between the profiles of the protesters and the profile of society in Turkey.

The second section is the theme report titled “Perception and Evaluation of the Gezi Protests”, that was included in the KONDA Barometer for July 2013. This theme report provides an in-depth analysis of how the Gezi Protests were perceived and evaluated by the general public in Turkey.

The third section provides an evaluation of the Gezi Protests, and features analyses and commentary on “Generation Y” and the use of social media, which were widely discussed in relation to the Gezi Protests. We hope that this report and the analyses provided will make a positive contribution towards an accurate and objective evaluation of the Gezi Protests, which we believe will make up a significant chapter in our social history.
