Turkey aimed to be the 'owner, pioneer and servant' of the post-Arab Spring Middle East, but has faced myriad challenges to its ambitious foreign policy. The speakers will discuss the extent to which Turkey represents an economic example for Arab states in transition, the dynamics of Turkey's foreign policy in the Middle East and the level of confidence among Arab publics towards Turkey's approach to the Middle East.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only. This event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.

This event is organized jointly by Chatham House and the London School of Economics Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies.
