Independent and cutting-edge analysis on Turkey and its neighborhood


On 31 October 2012, Turkish Policy Quarterly (TPQ), in conjunction with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation (FNF), hosted a roundtable discussion on the evolving dynamics of energy politics in Turkey’s neighborhood, which took place in Istanbul. The discussion aimed at enlightening how Ankara is playing its geo -strategic hand in relation to the energy power play, how the European Union’s common energy policy is evolving, and how the prospective pipelines might affect regional politics. This article reviews the main arguments and points made by the panelists, as well as further issues raised by the audience.
