Dr. Can Paker, the chairman of TESEV and a member of the World Movement Steering Committee, welcomed the participants to Istanbul and praised the Steering Committee's decision to hold the Assembly in Turkey. "The Assembly," he said, "honors and celebrates the efforts of Turkish democracy activists."

And this implies modernization, not "irtica" (i.e. "going back," the euphemism for Islamic fundamentalism in Turkey), according to Can Paker, TESEV's president. "Turkey and its political secular system is doing fine," says Mr. Paker, "it just needs more openness and freedom."

Dr. Can Paker, Director of TESEV, admits to the public perception that the number of headcovering (türbanl) females has increased since 1999, but he insists that the real number has actually decreased. Dr. Paker says that, 'As incomes have increased the number of türbanl headcoverers has decreased (from 16 to 11%). The incorrect public perception arises because headcoverers -- who used to stay at home -- are now coming out in public due to their increased affluence.'
The most worrisome aspect of the report from Dr. Paker's viewpoint is that a "them and us" attitude is developing within Turkish society -- which has mushroomed since the AKP religious-right government came to power in 2003. To support Dr. Paker's view, 71% of those polled in 2006 thought that too much friction exists between religionists and secularists. That's up from 50% in 1999.
