Pointing to deadlocks in global politics, A Fairer World Is Possible will be translated into several languages

A book authored by Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will hit shelves Monday, detailing the country’s struggle for global justice.

In the book, titled A Fairer World Is Possible, Erdogan highlights the deadlocks that global politics face, including injustice, refugee crises, international terrorism and Islamophobia. He also exposes the discrimination and double standards in the world via the case of the UN.

The president draws attention to problems related to the global body such as shortcomings in terms of its legitimacy, inclusiveness, efficiency, representation and governance, reiterating that it is in need of comprehensive reform.

As a solution, Erdogan suggests fair representation and the removal of the veto privilege that is currently limited to the five permanent members of the UN Security Council — the US, UK, France, Russia and China.

The book will be published by the Istanbul-based publishing house Turkuaz and translated into several languages, including English, Arabic, German, French, Russian and Spanish.

Profits from its sale will go to Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD).
