Unrest in Turkey: Situation Report

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

What began as a small sit-in in central Istanbul has morphed into protests in 67 of Turkey's 81 provinces,  with crowds calling for Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s resignation.  After a week of demonstrations and clashes between protestors and security forces in Istanbul’s Taksim Square, the world is anxiously watching and waiting…What’s next?  Will this be another Tahrir Square with a leader being toppled through grassroots revolution or could this be a prelude to another Tiananmen Square?

Join us for this morning program with Francis J. Ricciardone, Jr., Ambassador of the United States to the Republic of Turkey, as he discusses the situation and possible outcomes presently unfolding in Turkey as well as outlining the United States' enduring interests in our relations with Turkey and the region.  

Coffee and light continental breakfast is included.
