Lecture: Contemporary Opportunities and Challenges for Turkish Foreign Policy and Domestic Politics
Dr. Sinan Ciddi, Director of the Institute for Turkish Studies, Georgetown
Dr. Sinan Ciddi will provide a public address relating to contemporary debates surrounding the alleged ascent of Turkey as a regional power. How can Turkey's rise be classified and explained? Can Turkey be defined as a 'model' for post-Arab Spring countries to aspire to and what hindrances exist to challenge the country's new-found confidence?
