Turkey has been going through domestic, regional, and global challenges for the past several years. The country has overcome a failed coup in the summer of 2016, dealt with one of the worst humanitarian crises in recent memory, and confronted instability in the Middle East. U.S.-Turkey relations have been hit by unilateral U.S. sanctions and tariffs against Turkey. How these developments have been shaping Turkey’s domestic politics and its strategic choices in an increasingly unstable region continues to be under-discussed. A serious discussion of where Turkey stands today and where it might be headed is more relevant than ever to understand the policy implications for regional peace, as well as for the future of U.S. policy in the region.
