Overview

REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT HAS NOW CLOSED

This event will look at the growing importance of Turkish foreign policy across the Arab world. The Arab revolutions, embraced by Prime Minister Erdoğan’s government, have given a new focus to Turkey’s activist diplomacy, whilst strong economic growth over the past decade has brought the country new markets and partners across the Middle East and North Africa.

The event will consider how Turkey, as a key regional power, must now manage the sometimes conflicting demands and expectations in its broad neighbourhood. It will also look at opportunities and constraints on deepening engagement in the region.

This event is organized in collaboration with the Centre for Turkey Studies.
