2018 Turkish Lecture Series: Is Turkey a Democracy?

Presented in partnership with the American-Turkish Friendship Council.

In the fall of 2004, the European Commission recommended that Turkey begin negotiations to join the most exclusive of clubs, the European Union. Almost a decade and a half later, democratic norms and institutions are greatly weakened and the prospects for EU membership have dimmed.  How did this happen? What are the prospects for a reversal of Turkey’s authoritarian trajectory? What does Turkey’s authoritarian turn mean for its relations with the United States and Europe?

Lecture by Steven A. Cook, PhD, Eni Enrico Mattei Senior Fellow for Middle East and Africa Studies, Council on Foreign Relations
