Inan, Kamran

(1929- )
   Kamran Inan is a prominent Turkish politician who is an ethnic Kurd. His father was an exiled Naqshbandi sheikh and his mother a survivor of the Armenian massacres in World War I. Inan graduated from the Ankara University Faculty of Law and also earned a Ph.D. in Law from the University of Geneva. He has been a diplomat serving as the Turkish ambassador to the United Nations, longtime member of the Turkish parliament, and even a presidential candidate against Suleyman Demirel in 1993. He has also been an ardent proponent of the Guneydogu Anadolu Projesi (GAP) project. Thus, Inan is often held up by the Turkish establishment as an example of how high ethnic Kurds can rise in Turkey.
