In recent months, Turkey has witnessed some significant domestic developments, including a sharp economic slowdown, the launch of peace negotiations between the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and the Turkish state, and the constitutional drafting process appears to be heading towards stalemate. The speakers will offer their perspectives on the implications of these developments on Turkey's stability, prosperity and security.
The Q&A will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
