''Trump ve Netanyahu’nun kaderler ve beklentilerinin kesiştiği, Ortadoğu’nun pek çok sorunla birden boğuştuğu bir dönemde İstanbul Kültür Üniversitesi Küresel Siyasal Eğilimler Birimi, cuma sabahı iki sağduyulu Filistinliyi ağırladı. Ezanın okunmasına getirilmeye çalışılan kısıtlamadan Türkiye’nin bölgedeki rolüne kadar pek çok konu masaya yatırıldı.''
Global Political Trends Center of Istanbul Kültür University organised the first round of its new roundtable meeting series ‘GPoT Talks’. The first round of the GPoT Talks featured the Palestinian Questions, the Palestinian minority in Israel, Israeli-Arab and Turkish relations, with a focus on recent developments in the region. A significant attention was given to the status of Muslim communities in Israel, moderate Islamic movements in Palestine and Israel, and domestic political developments in the region.
Global Political Trends (GPoT) Center's Dr. Sylvia Tiryaki expressed her thoughts on the projected outcomes of the Cyprus Talks during an interview with Daily Sabah.
Upon the signing of a reconciliation agreement between the Israeli and Turkish governments in June 2016, and the start of a new chapter in bilateral relations, participants in the ongoing policy dialogue between Mitvim and GPoT Center were asked to offer their thoughts.
In their articles, partcipants offer their thoughts on the lessons that can be drawn from the recent period of diplomatic tension, as well as the opportunities and challenges facing this bilateral relationship in the coming years.
The first two articles in this series are:
GPoT Center's 'Turkish Cypriots Want A Secure Future' a book based on the in-depth interviews conducted by the GPoT Center's staff in Cyprus in February and March 2016 is available now.
