ideology of democratic confederalism, functions in practise. To draw conclusions, I have studied

the nation-state and capitalism and has the potential to create a free, democratic society in
which minorities have a place. This could bring revolutionary change in the Middle East.

every aspect. The war conditions, authoritarian PYD rule and antagonistic neighbours are the
region’s main challenges
