ΑΛΛΕΣ ΠΛΗΡΟΦΟΡΙΕΣ:   AKP came to power in Turkey in 2002 after a devastating economic crisis and since then it remained in power and even increased its popularity. Not only it is puzzling that AKP and its leader Erdoğan could stay in power so long without facing any governmental fatigue, but also it is puzzling that despite their neoliberal economic policies, their votes mostly come from the poorer echelons of the society. This article argues that AKP and Erdoğan in Turkey can be seen as a prime example of “neoliberal populism.” The argument is not just that neoliberal policies accompany populist politics, but neoliberal policies have indeed paved the way for populist politics. In order explain how AKP’s regime is sustained, this study looks at the social policies of AKP as material sources of neoliberal populism and argues that they have largely benefited the unorganized poor strata of the society who have suffered most from neoliberalism. While neoliberalism increases poverty, social exclusion and insecurity, these new social policies help AKP gain popularity among the poor and weaken opposition to neoliberalism. Therefore, AKP not only committed Turkey further to neoliberalism, but it also found ways to make it look more humane and consensual. As a result, AKP has become a hegemonic party in Turkish politics, despite its increasing authoritarianism and corrupt activities.
