The political situation in Turkey, a hinge between Europe and the Middle East, a member of NATO and a candidate to join the European Union since 2005, has turned notably over the last two decades under successive Islamic governments. After the electoral victory of the party of the present president Erdoğan in 2003, Turkey’s interests and relations have shifted from reformist European Islam and friendly relations with the United States and Israel, towards populist attitudes and cooperation with Russia. Moreover, several factors have had destabilising effects on the Euro-Asian nation such as, internally, the attempted coup in 2016 and the economic crises of 2000 and 2018 and, indirectly, the Arab Springs, the war in Syria, the territorial conflicts of the Caucasus and Kurdistan and the immigration crisis.

What is the reaction of the secular tiers to the advancement of religious fundamentalism? How can internationalisation and the support of the United States affect the Kurdish minority in the region of South-eastern Anatolia? What does Turkey propose as a solution to the war in Syria? What are the aspirations of the leader Erdoğan in the Muslim regions of influence in the old Ottoman Empire? At what point are the negotiations of Turkey’s joining the European Union? What role does Turkey represent in European immigration policies? These and other questions will be analysed and debated by Carmen Rodríguez López, a Lecturer in the Department of Arab and Islamic Studies and Eastern Studies at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and Andrés Mourenza, a writer, journalist and El País correspondent in Turkey.

A debate format in which, once a month, on a Monday at 7:30 pm, leading experts analyse important issues that make up today’s social reality with the journalists Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso.

The presenters put some of the audience’s questions to the guests. Please send your suggestions to: lacuestionpalpitante@march.es
