Event Description

Under the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkey has descended into a dictatorship. It promotes the Islamist agenda, abuses human rights, limits freedom of expression in the press, and wages war against the Kurds. While the country has historically been important geopolitically, it has become an outlier in Europe and an uncertain ally of the United States.

How has Erdoğan polarized Turkish society and created the conditions that led to the coup attempt of July 2016? How dangerous is he to his country, to the region, and internationally?

David Phillips is director of the Program on Peace-building and Rights at Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights. He has worked as a foreign affairs expert and senior adviser to the U.S. Department of State during the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations.
