Turkey is facing a crisis on multiple levels. Tensions over Syria and gas in the Eastern Mediterranean threaten to permanently damage relations with the country’s traditional western allies. Meanwhile, a crackdown continues on academics and journalists, with profound effects on the institutions that once provided a limited degree of free speech.
To analyse these issues, how they are interlinked, and what might be coming next, join former foreign minister Yasar Yakis, editor in chief of Ahval news Yavuz Baydar, Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies, European Institute, London School of Economics and Political Science Esra Ozyurek, and Managing Editor of Kappa news Yannis Koutsomitis.
