Turkey:  Friend, Foe, or Hard to Know?

Jun 6 | 1 - 3 pm  |  In-person Tallent Hall Room 182 or Online by Zoom
Register by Jun 2

Our presenter is Arthur I. Cyr, who is the director of the International Political Economy Program and a professor of political science at Carthage College. Turkey in this century has been in the news mainly as our troublesome ally. Long-time ruler Recep Tayyip Erdogan has become increasingly autocratic, and repression of information media has increased. A rapprochement has been achieved with traditional rival Russia. Most recently, Erdogan has delayed Sweden's entry into the NATO Alliance.

Yet Turkey has been a faithful member of NATO, beginning with a strong commitment to the UN defense of South Korea. Ankara has permitted basing U. S. B-52 bombers during the 1990-91 confrontation and war to end Iraq's occupation of Kuwait. Join Professor Cyr to hear more about Turkey.
