The Turkish Republic, proclaimed at the end of the Turkish National Struggle under the leadership of Ataturk, is a state that leans on the heritage of six centuries Ottoman Empire and constructed on the ashes of it. It was naturally brought with continuity about understanding and institutions of state, because the cadre who performed the national struggle and founded the new state was the last generation of the Ottoman Empire.
Ataturk continued the reform method of the Ottoman state, which was destroyed after a long experience of reform, with more radical and radical practices. In addition, he acted more realistically in terms of understanding of dominance and did not pursue ideals that the state could not afford.
The main goal of this process was limited to realize the principles of the National Pact. It is known that they tried to find possibilities for internal reforms, around the principals of “peace at home, peace in the World”.
