Nicholas Danforth on Turkey-NATO Relations

November 22, 2017

Episode Notes:

Nicholas Danforth of the Bipartisan Policy Center discusses relations between Turkey and NATO. Driven in part by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s authoritarian leanings, particularly after the July 2016 coup attempt against him, coupled with different interests with regard to ISIS and the Kurds, has driven current relations to a new low. Nicholas explains how this came to be and what it means for the alliance in the near future.
