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 looked at the political situation in Turkey and the future of Turkish democracy on August 3, featuring our Ankara office director Özgür Ünlühisarcıklı.
