About the Author

Ezgi Başaran is a Turkish journalist who made her name covering the Kurdish conflict – reporting "on the ground" in the fight between ISIS, the YPG (People’s Protection Unit), the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) and the Turkish state. After accepting an offer to write a daily column on Turkish foreign affairs, she became the youngest ever editor of Radikal, the biggest centre-left news outlet in Turkey, and the first woman to hold the role. After facing government censorship when covering the breakdown of the Kurdish talks, she resigned and Radikal was shut down – an event which made headlines worldwide. She has written on Turkish domestic politics and her comments have appeared in major international media, including the BBC, the Financial Times, The Economist, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.
