‘Turkey’s Challenges’ is next topic at Great Decisions at the Library
Great Decisions at the Library presents “Turkey’s Challenges” at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 25 at Bethany Lutheran Church.
Turkey today is a nation at a crossroads, a bridge between an ever-growing chasm between the East and West. Turkey’s first prime minister, Kemal Ataturk, envisioned a modern, democratic nation-state built on the ashes of the Ottoman Empire with strong ties to Europe rather than the Middle East. But as the clashes between secular and religious groups and the recent protests in Taksim Square show, the soul of Turkey is still very much up for grabs.
Resat Keşaba, director of the University of Washington’s Jackson School of International Studies, will serve as moderator.
