The establishment of the Turkish Republic marked the end to a long era of conflict. Atatürk declared ‘peace at home and peace abroad’ as the republic’s guiding principle. This talk will ask if Turkey can ever again become a source of peace and stability in the region. Speakers will reflect on the prospects, against the current background of national, regional and international turmoil.
