Özet

At present, one important issue under discussion is whether Turkey will join the European Community, despite her being a Moslem country. This study shows that religious socialization among university students (N = 1099) is increasing, but not at the expense of democratic values. Although, religious socialization appears to increase, subjects overwhelmingly reject religious discrimination and fundamentalism. The data were collected in 1978 (N = 536) and in 1991 (N = 563), from groups at universities, in Ankara, which included the Faculty of Theological Studies.
