Turkey is increasingly intervening militarily in the territories of several of its Middle East neighbours, while relations with other regional players are souring. This is in stark contrast to their “zero problems with neighbouring countries” strategy of only a decade ago. Turkish affairs analysts Dr Tezcan Gümüş and Iain MacGillivray discuss Turkey’s motives in its new foreign policy direction, and examine the economic and political costs of interventionism. Presented by Ali Moore.
