Political Salon with Soli Özel
Recent developments in Turkey had precipitously brought the country into an almost existential crossroads. Will the government heed a widespread, pluralistic, popular outcry and deepen Turkish democracy or be lured by the siren calls of populism and monopolistic power? “The road not taken” will have repercussions beyond Turkey’s own destiny. A seemingly disinterested, long myopic and currently nearly paralyzed EU may need to have a fresh look at its most challenging file.
