The making of Republican Turkey started from the definition of a homologating identity safeguarded through unamendable constitutional provisions. Therefore, the present essay analyses the role principles of secularism and of nationalism have for the definition of such identity as well as their influence on the rules for the recognition of citizenship. Some concluding remarks, finally, highlight that a redefinition of such a fundamental element, as debated during the attempts for a constitutional reform started since 2011, may represent a turning point for Turkey, both for its constitutional system and for its geo-strategic role in the international scenario
