Turkey Book Talk # 176 Galip Dalay, associate fellow at Chatham House and non-resident senior fellow at the Middle East Council on Global Affairs, on his recent paper “Turkey’s Middle East Reset: A Precursor for Reescalation?

Dalay looks at the push and pull factors behind this initiative, the challenges it faces, and some of the possible exceptions.
