What is Turkey seeking in the Middle-East? Videoconférence

A videoconference around Dorothée Schmid, head of Ifri’s Turkey / Middle-East Pogram.

Vulnerable on a domestic level, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is increasingly resorting to military interventions abroad. Now a key player in the Syrian conflict, his progressive involvement in the Libyan dossier confirms his strategic orientation: the development of Sunni and neo-Ottoman leadership in North Africa and the Middle East, served by a powerful economic and cultural diplomacy. How far can Turkey go in the region?


Chair : Thomas Gomart, director of Ifri.


This debate is for corporate members only. It will be conducted in French.
