In my recent lecture for the Koscuzsko Chair Intermarium Series at the Institute of World Politics, I talk about Turkey’s future under President Recep Erdogan and its implications for American foreign policy and the Middle East.
The defeat of the Islamic State will create several knock-on effects in the Middle East. Namely, the Kurds will likely renew calls for their independence. The U.S. should support these claims.
Turkish President Recep Erdogan is disinterested in fighting ISIS, so long as it means supporting the Kurds. The Trump Administration should act accordingly.
In the wake of horrific terrorist attack in Turkey, I provide an in-depth analysis on the geopolitical situation in Turkey. This will provide you with greater context about Turkey’s role in the war on ISIS.
