Turkey's Turn? April 10-11, 2014 The Fletcher School

Turkey's Turn?

Thank you for attending Turkey's Turn? Perennial Linchpin or Emerging Hub?, hosted by The Fletcher School’s Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC) and The Fares Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies. The conference brought together heads of state, industry leaders, observers, analysts and policymakers to ask the question:

Will Turkey remain the perennial linchpin or “break out” to become an emerging hub in the region?  

Over two days, we explored key themes contributing to Turkey’s unique geopolitical and security context, opportunities for investment and Turkey's role as a hub for private enterprise and an energy bridge in its region. The event produced many fascinating discussions and insights. Be sure to check out our photo gallery from the two days, video interviews with speakers, and the official conference report.
