Great Decisions in Foreign Policy

Turkey: A Partner In Crisis

Season 9, Episode 5 of 8

Once seen as a model of democracy, Turkey may be slipping toward autocracy. Critics charge that President Recip Tayyip Erdogan used a failed coup d'etat in 2016 as a means of consolidating power - power he says is necessary to secure the state. Great Decisions producers traveled to Turkey to examine the relationship with this key U.S. ally.
