Sweden and Finland’s application for NATO membership has been approved by all but two member states, Turkey and Hungary, and Hungary’s approval is forthcoming. What accounts for Turkey’s unwillingness to promptly approve Sweden’s membership? And are these Turkish demands typical of Turkey’s involvement in NATO or suggestive of a new, style of engagement with the treaty organization?
Reuben Silverman (Researcher, Stockholm University Institute for Turkish Studies) will discuss Turkey’s involvement in NATO and the motivations for its ongoing block on Swedish membership. The talk will focus on both the demands Turkey is making on Sweden and the larger political and international relations context in which these tensions are occurring.
