Phone Seminar: “Impact of the Turkish Referendum”

April 26 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Phone Conference, Washington, DC 20007 United States + Google Map

Featuring: Dr. Aykan Erdemir Wednesday, April 26, 2017 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (ET) Call-In Number: (712) 432-0075  Participant Code: 397784 Submit a question for Dr. Erdemir Erdogan's powers. Unofficial results, which the Turkish opposition has said it would challenge on the basis of fraud, showed a narrow victory with 51.4 percent of votes cast in favor of the changes. The new powers to the Turkish presidency are vast, including the ability to: 1) appoint judges without input from parliament; 2) issue decrees with the force of law; 3) dissolve parliament; 4) have the sole prerogative over all senior appointments in the bureaucracy; and 4) exercise exclusive control of the armed forces. This will create a system with few checks on the President, as head of state, and also the head of government. This referendum is the just the latest example of Recep Erdogan's work, since he first became Prime Minister of Turkey in 2002, to make Turkey an Islamist nation that he could rule. On July 15th, 2016, in response to a Turkish…

To discuss the Trump Administration's "peace" plans, EMET is proud to host Gregg Roman, the Director of the Middle East Forum (MEF).  Mr. Roman will also be discussing the Congressional Israel Victory Caucus (CIVC), that the MEF has helped establish on Capitol Hill.  The caucus' goal: to introduce a new U.S. approach to Israel-Palestinian relations. Since 1988, every U.S. administration has invested in Israeli-Palestinian diplomacy, but nearly three decades of failure strongly suggest that Israeli-Palestinian negotiations need rethinking. The caucus calls for a new U.S. approach to…

Because of this, large scale rioting broke out among the Palestinians in East Jerusalem. By the time…

On Sunday, July 16, Iran announced it has sentenced an American graduate student to 10 years on charges he was spying for the United States. This announcement came months after the graduate student disappeared in Iran, where he was doing research for a doctoral thesis at Princeton University. There are at least four other American citizens currently unjustly detained in Iran on unverified charges. This is only one example of Iran’s long list of human rights abuses. The Islamic Republic of Iran places severe restrictions on civil liberties, including the freedoms of assembly, association, speech, religion, academic freedom and press; abuses due process and has the second highest rate of executions, only behind China; has undemocratic elections; and discriminates against women, ethnic and religious minorities and homosexuals. Despite initial optimism that the Rouhani administration may improve Iran’s…
