Program Type:Active Minds
A failed coup attempt and a flood of refugees have challenged the leadership of Turkey’s President Erdogan. A strong U.S. ally during the Cold War, Turkey is now one of the world's largest Muslim democracies. Join Active Minds as we explore Turkey's past and current challenges, including its struggles with its Kurdish minority, its role in the rise of ISIS, and what appears to be its warming relations with Russia. Sponsored by the Central Park Master Community Association.
