Despite a struggling economy, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan emerged victorious from the presidential election in May and his alliance maintained a majority in parliament. While the elections did not lead to a change in government, there are early signs of a change in policy. President Erdoğan made a comprehensive overhaul of his cabinet, with his minister of finance indicating a shift in the government's economic approach. On foreign policy, President Erdoğan gave up the blockade of Sweden’s accession to NATO, linking it to a revitalization of Türkiye’s EU accession process.
Yet, questions remain as to how substantive these changes in policy will be. What are the prospects of a normalization of Türkiye’s relations with the EU and the United States? How reliable of a partner will President Erdoğan be in his new term? What domestic priorities can we expect from the new government?
Participation by invitation only.
