Turkey’s ruling AKP restored its majority in parliament on November 1. But the election was held after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan refused to accept the June 7 election’s results, sabotaged efforts to form a coalition government, relaunched war in the country’s southeast—and after a massive suicide bombing in Ankara.

Will this election stabilize Turkey? What does this election mean for Turkey’s regional posture, and what kind of partner will it be for the U.S.?

Speakers at this forum drew from Turkey Transformed, a recently published study in which CACI scholars partnered with the Bipartisan Policy Center to investigate Turkey’s transformation under Erdogan.
