CEFTUS Roundtable with Dr Soner Cagaptay “Turkey under Erdogan and Davutoglu”

Under AKP rule, Turkey has moved into a post-Kemalist phase in domestic politics and foreign policy, alike. As Erdogan takes the country’s helm as president and Davutoglu ascends to become his prime minister, how does Turkey’s future look like under their joint government? Which factors will shape the country’s foreign policy and what are the limits to Erdogan’s power at home? Dr Cagaptay will address these question in his speech.

Soner Cagaptay is the Beyer Family fellow and director of the Turkish Research Program at The Washington Institute. He has written extensively on U.S.-Turkish relations, Turkish domestic politics, and Turkish nationalism, publishing in scholarly journals and major international print media, including the Wall Street Journal, Washington Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, International Herald Tribune, Habertürk and Jane’s Defense Weekly. He is a regular columnist for Hürriyet Daily News, Turkey’s oldest and most influential English-language paper, and a contributor to CNN’s Global Public Square blog. He appears regularly on Fox News, CNN, NPR, Voice of America, al-Jazeera, BBC, CNN-Turk and al-Hurra.
