From the Paper:

"The Kurds are one of the largest stateless ethnic groups in the world. Their traditional homelands take in parts of several nations, but the largest number of Kurds (12-14 million) live in Turkey, primarily in the southeast. The Kurds of Turkey are not united in their desire for an independent nation. But all are in favor of a change in their status within Turkey where their language, culture, ethnicity, and minority status are not just officially nonexistent but, paradoxically, repressed. Yet until they acquire sovereignty, autonomy, federation status, or merely recognition as a legal minority within the nation, the Kurds will remain the Turkish nation's greatest political problem and its most serious impediment to European Union membership and other associations and developments that the government officially desires in order to achieve parity with other modern states."
