A Teach-in with FIU Faculty and Community Experts

The aftermath of Turkey’s recent failed coup attempt is proving to have far-reaching and unsettling consequences for Turkey's citizens, its allies and the surrounding region. A state of emergency has been declared for three months, allowing the government to rule by decree and continue purges within the state apparatus, raising fears of a growing authoritarian state. Join the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs for a teach-in with a panel of experts as they explore the failed coup and the impact and consequences of Erdogan's response on Turkey's domestic society and its regional and global relations.

Panelists: - Dr. Gonul Tol, Director of Turkish Studies, Middle East Institute, Washington, D.C. - Dr. Mustafa Gokhan Sahin, Director of Academic Affairs, Atlantic Institute of Atlanta - Dr. Eric Lob, Assistant Professor, Department of Politics and International Relations, FIU - Dr. Mohammad Homayounvash, Research Fellow, Middle East Studies Program, FIU - Orcun Selcuk, Ph.D. Candidate, Department of Politics and International Relations, FIU
