Turkey advancing in the Middle East Seminar and Round-table Conference

The Syrian imbroglio has arguably proved to be the most consequential foreign policy topics for Turkey in decades, structurally impacting Ankara's vision and priorities as well as its regional engagement.

If this crisis has had qualitative impacts on Turkey's western ties in general and European in particular, another crisis of unknown consequences between Turkey and Saudi Arabia is in offing.  The murder of Jamal Khasogghi in Istanbul consulate has generated a set reactions shaking bilateral relations between the two regional powers as well as larger regional geopolitics. 

What can be learned from the Khashoggi affair on Turkey today’s priority? What role Ankara wishes to play in a regional game evermore conflictual? The volatility of Turkish alliances frightens the Europeans in a context of general tensions with the United States.
