Good afternoon, listeners! We have a great show for you today as host Richard Aldous speaks with John Kornblum about America’s relationship with Europe before discussing the failed Turkish coup with Henri J. Barkey.
We’re first joined by John Kornblum, who served as Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs from 1994–97 and as U.S. Ambassador to Germany from 1997–2001. He reflects on Brexit and how we got to this point, and talks about the state of America’s Transatlantic relationships.
Then, Henri J. Barkey, the Director of the Middle East Program at the Woodrow Wilson Center, returns to the program to discuss the failed coup attempt in Turkey, looking ahead at what’s next for Erdogan, the country, and the region.
