Is There Reason to Hope? Turkey After the 2018 Elections
Add to Calendar Event Location
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his AKP-MHP “Republican Alliance” emerged victorious in the June 24 presidential and parliamentary elections. Erdoğan will now assume unprecedented executive powers under the 2017 amendments that come into effect with the new government.
How did Erdoğan secure his win? What are the implications for Turkey’s political landscape? What will this mean for the U.S.-Turkish relationship?
