World Affairs Council of Houston Lecture: Turkey's Evolving Domestic & Foreign Policy


The Arab Spring has been a watershed moment in the Middle East, inspiring a wave change across the region. It has also caused a major re-evaluation of Turkey's foreign and domestic policy. Turkey's goal of 'zero problems' with neighbors collides with the recent actions of President Assad of Syria. How will Turkey now relate to a president who is accused of violently suppressing popular protest? How can it address a large wave of refugees flooding towards its border? How will Turkey manage the changing relationships in the new Middle East?

Ömer Taşpinar of the Brookings Institution will address these issues at this talk, co-sponsored by the Turquoise Council of Americans and Eurasians.
