Turkey, a U.S. Ally Adrift: Is a Reversal Possible?

September 18, 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 8:15 pm

Cleveland Committee on Foreign Relations events are for CCFR members only.

In recent years, Turkey has drifted away from its traditional Western allies and problems have developed in U.S.-Turkey relations, as Turkish leadership has become increasingly anti-Western. What are the prospects for Turkey’s re-democratization? How can Turkish relations with the West, including the U.S., improve? Dr. Kirişci, senior fellow at Brookings, will join us to answer these key questions and more.

Dr. Kemal Kirişci is the TÜSİAD senior fellow and director of the Center on the United States and Europe’s Turkey Project at Brookings. Kirişci is an expert on Turkish foreign policy and he runs the Turkey Project Policy Paper series at Brookings, which focuses on the latest developments within Turkey.

Dr. Kirişci’s most recent book, “Turkey and the West: Faultlines in a Troubled Alliance,” will be available for purchase at a discounted rate at the event. 

Location: The Union Club, Main Dining Room.
