Description

Speakers:
Mustafa Akyol, Turkish political commentator and author
Jeffrey Collins, Senior Counsel for International Policy Affairs, Chevron Corporation

Turkey has been enmeshed in a wave of nationwide anti-government protests in recent months, and the expansion of the demonstrations suggests that the unrest was fueled by more than a simple determination to save a green space in central Istanbul. Collins and Akyol will discuss the underlying causes of the recent protests, and assess their likely impact on Turkey’s domestic and foreign policy.
