The Centre for Turkey Studies (CEFTUS) and the King’s College London Diplomacy Society hosted a joint panel discussion event on 4 April at King’s College London entitled ‘Referendum in Turkey: Presidential Systems, the Economy and Foreign Policy’. Dr Gulcin Ozkan, Professor of Economics at the University of York, and Dr Katerina Dalacoura, Associate Professor in International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), part of the MENARA Team spoke at the event which was kindly chaired by the President of King’s College London Diplomacy Society, Peter Frostad.

Dr Dalacoura began her presentation by referring to her paper on the future of Turkey’s foreign policy, which she has produced as part of the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project MENARA project. Dr Dalacoura explained that one argument of her paper was that Ahmet Davutoglu’s departure as Prime Minister marked the end of one phase of Turkish foreign policy and the start of another.
