Carnegie Europe has convened three off-the-record policymaker roundtables on Turkey in London, Berlin, and Brussels. Each discussion will engage officials from national governments, key ministries and parliaments to review their country’s posture toward Turkey and policy options for the relationship moving forward. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the roundtables had to take place in a digital format.
The demographic futures of Turkey and Europe are entwined. The influx of nearly four million Syrians fleeing the civil war is Turkey’s most significant demographic change in decades. The project aims to develop a comprehensive strategy that addresses the key security questions in northern Syria and advances a coordinated EU response in coordination with the U.S. in 2021.
