Was that Just the Beginning? Talking about Gezi after two years.

Movimenti del Mondo is a series of debates and documentaries/movies promoted by the Scuola Normale Superiore and organized by Lorenzo Bosi (SNS), Donatella Della Porta (SNS/EUI) and Alice Mattoni (EUI).

The first event of the series focuses on the 2013 Turkish protests that initially emerged to oppose the construction of a mall in Gezi Park, Istanbul. These protests had a strong international and national resonance, shifting during the following months to more generic political issues, and successfully spreading to the rest of the country.
