Foreign Policy Talks (7): What Next in US Foreign Policy Towards Turkey and the Middle East?

In the seventh instalment of the Foreign Policy Talks, a series of closed roundtables organized in cooperation with Heinrich Böll Stiftung Foundation Turkey, Biden Administration's possible foreign policy priorities towards Turkey and the Middle East and their implications for Turkish foreign policy making were discussed.

The certified result confirmed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's victory in 2020 US Presidential Elections. It is expected that the new administration engages in a process of restoration to replace the non-conventional approach of the Trump administration to current foreign policy issues including the relations with Turkey and Middle Eastern states. In any case, Turkey-US relations will be under the spotlight, given the series of most serious crises that caused the bilateral relations to be at an all time low.


The seventh installment of the Foreign Policy Talks series, which was held virtually, focused on Biden Administration's possible foreign policy priorities towards Turkey and the Middle East and their implications for Turkish foreign policy making. The talk was attended by researchers from IstanPol and Heinrich Böll Stiftung Foundation Turkey, as well as many academics, foreign policy analysts, diplomats and journalists. The roundtable started with the presentation by speakers, followed by a discussion on the topic.
