Leading Turkey analyst and author David Barchard will be giving his assessment on the country as it enters a new era, transitioning from a parliamentary system of government to a presidential one.
During the evening lecture, organised by the Anglo-Turkish Society at the Royal Anthropological Institute in London, Barchard will look at the growth of the idea of a presidential system in Turkey, its main features, the campaign leading up to the referendum on 16 April and subsequent developments.
The event is open to members of the public and prior booking is required – see below for details.
