President Erdoğan has jailed some of his most prominent political rivals and recently indicated that he plans to arbitrarily reschedule the elections to mid-May\, a move that’s evocative of past turns to one-party government. Will Erdoğan further undermine democratic competition and accountability? How will this affect diplomatic relations with the EU\, Russia\, and the US? And how will all of this be affected by Türkiye’s ongoing economic turmoil\, the ongoing political conflicts around migration in the region\, the war in Ukraine\, and the catastrophic earthquakes in early February?\n \n\nAdditional Information:  \n\nContact Information: For more information\, please contact:\nMary Okwese\nAdministrative Secretary\nCentre for the Study of Security and Development (CSSD)\nT: 902.494.3769 |\ LOCATION:Please join us in-person in Mona Campbell 3107\, or via Zoom\, by following this link: URL: UID: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
