Nations in Transition: Mexico & Turkey – A Dialogues Seminar

June 3, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

A Dialogues Seminar in collaboration with the Institute for the Study of the Americas

Mexico and Turkey are key nations in the recent social and political upheavals that have shaken public life in North America and Europe, yet outsiders often misunderstand the complex changes that are transforming both of these countries.  Join us for a Dialogues seminar with UNC Professors Cecilia Martinez-Gallardo and Cemil Aydin to explore the tensions within Mexican and Turkish societies and the influence of these nations on contemporary politics in the United States and Europe. Our seminar will include a comparative discussion of why the transitions in Mexico and Turkey are affecting transnational exchanges and attracting international attention.

The Challenges to Democratic Consolidation in Mexico

Cecilia Martinez-Gallardo, Associate Professor of Political Science

The Achievements, Failures and Turbulence of Democracy in Contemporary Turkey
