HENRI BARKEY BELIEVES ERDOGAN IS UNDERMINING HIS OWN LEGACY.
Amid major corruption investigations, harsh police crackdowns of anti-government protests and suppression of the Turkish press and social media, Prime Minister Erdogan’s increasingly autocratic leadership has further distanced Turkey from the EU’s core values of freedom, equality, respect of human rights and the rule of law. Professor Henri Barkey, a leading expert on Turkey and a former member of the U.S. Department of State Policy Planning Staff, can provide the context and insights needed to understand the implications of Turkey’s shift on the world stage and help inform American foreign policy.
