GMF brings together hundreds of policymakers, elected officials, academics, and business leaders from around the world to discuss topics from energy to migration, economics to security, urban growth to diplomacy.
In the wake of a failed coup attempt, the Turkish government has suspended more than 50,000 public servants and has detained more than 5,000. Public squares in major cities are seeing pro-government rallies in show of defiance or perhaps, as signs of continued volatility. With Turkey being a major ally in the Middle East and a destination of much capital flow from Europe and the United States, the fourth iteration of GMF Leadership Perspectives will look at the future of Turkish democracy on August 3, featuring our Ankara office director Özgür Ünlühisarcıklı. To join, please register your interest below, and we will send you the dial in instructions and add you to a Whatsapp group that will allow you to pose questions. Please make sure that the cell phone number you provide in the registration is for the device on which you will have your Whatsapp installed.
