February 27 | Great Decisions - Turkey: A Partner in Crisis

Of all NATO allies, Turkey represents the most daunting challenge for the Trump administration. After a failed military coup in July 2016, the autocratic trend strengthened and the population considers the U.S. a security threat. In the context of a “clash of civilizations,” is Turkey’s geo-strategic position as the world's most institutionally westernized Muslim country.
