The Middle East Institute's Center for Turkish Studies is proud to host Mr. Taha Özhan, Director General of the Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research (SETA Ankara), for a discussion on Turkey's upcoming elections on June 12.

Turks will go to the polls to elect their government on June 12th. What will the political landscape in Turkey look like after the elections? Will there be a major realignment in the parliament? What will the new dynamics mean for Turkey's pressing policy challenges such as the Kurdish issue, Cyprus, and a new constitution? How will the election results affect Turkey's foreign policy vis-a-vis the Middle East, the European Union and the United States? Please join us for an in-depth exploration of these important questions.
