Let's Talk Turkey: Recent developments in Turkey and the Middle East
The Atlantic Institute TN Lecture series hosted by Vanderbilt University, Department of History and Department of Political Science was held on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 4:00 pm at Vanderbilt University Buttrick Hall.
Dr. Isa Afacan talked about the phenomenon of state collapse in the Middle East in the aftermath of the Arab Spring. As Syria descended into a civil war, and Iraq is experiencing serious chaos in governance and lost control of significant parts of its territory, sub-state and trans-state actors are filling the power vacuum and creating substantial problems for the region and the globe. Hence, Dr. Afacan will discuss resultant challenges of refugees, terrorism and instability in the region and Turkey.

Dr. Isa Afacan is an assistant professor of International Relations at Turgut Ozal University, Ankara, Turkey. He received his Ph.D. from the School of International and Public Affairs at Florida International University, Miami, FL.
