Background: Modern Turkey was founded in 1923 from the Anatolian remnants of the defeated Ottoman Empire by national hero Mustafa KEMAL , who was later honored with the title Ataturk or "Father of the Turks." Under his authoritarian leadership , the country adopted wide-ranging social , legal , and political reforms. After a period of one-party rule , an experiment with multi-party politics led to the 1950 election victory of the opposition Democratic Party and the peaceful transfer of power. Since then , Turkish political parties have multiplied , but democracy has been fractured by periods of instability and intermittent military coups (1960 , 1971 , 1980) , which in each case eventually resulted in a return of political power to civilians. In 1997 , the military again helped engineer the ouster - popularly dubbed a "post-modern coup" - of the then Islamic-oriented government. Turkey intervened militarily on Cyprus in 1974 to prevent a Greek takeover of the island and has since acted as patron state to the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus ," which only Turkey recognizes. A separatist insurgency begun in 1984 by the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) - now known as the People's Congress of Kurdistan or Kongra-Gel (KGK) - has dominated the Turkish military's attention and claimed more than 30 ,000 lives. After the capture of the group's leader in 1999 , the insurgents largely withdrew from Turkey mainly to northern Iraq. In 2004 , KGK announced an end to its ceasefire and attacks attributed to the KGK increased. Turkey joined the UN in 1945 and in 1952 it became a member of NATO. In 1964 , Turkey became an associate member of the European Community; over the past decade , it has undertaken many reforms to strengthen its democracy and economy enabling it to begin accession membership talks with the European Union.
