A seminar with Dr. Amanda Sloat, Democracy in Hard Places Fellow, Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation.

Moderated by Tarek Masoud, Sultan of Oman Professor of International Relations, HKS.

Turkey is facing internal and external threats, including the aftermath of a July 2016 coup attempt and the destabilizing effects of the Syrian war. At the same time, Turkey's domestic politics are becoming increasingly authoritarian with narrowing space for political opposition, free media, and civil society. With mistrust growing on both sides, Turkey is near an all-time low in its relations with the west. This talk will discuss the challenges currently facing Turkey, as well as the policy options available to the US and EU in response.

Co-sponsored by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation.
