“Peace at home and peace abroad”: can Turkey recapture Ataturk’s guiding principle?

09 March 2017 18:30 to 20:30

Panel Discussion - London

The establishment of the Turkish Republic in 1923 marked the end of a long era of war and conflict. The founder of the republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, declared “peace at home and peace abroad” as the new state's guiding principle.

Today, with war in Syria, terrorist violence, and the turmoil caused by the July attempted coup d’état, Ataturk’s aspiration seems remote. Can Turkey re-embrace it, and become a source of stability and peace in the region?

Our distinguished speakers will reflect on the prospects for regional stability while disentangling the complex relationship between national, regional and international politics.
