Turkish Policy Quarterly -The Atlantic Council IN TURKEY –joint special issue on Turkey’s Energy Nexus: Discoveries and Developments was launched at the Atlantic Council’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. in December 2018. Based on the joint publication, at this second gathering, our panel will address energy dynamics in Turkey and its neighborhood, in the context of a shifting geopolitical landscape. Topics of discussion will include developments in TANAP, energy diversification, energy potential in the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as their wider implications for regional stability and Turkey’s current and potential cooperation on energy with Europe and the United States. We also seek to explore the choices ahead for Ankara’s policymakers as Turkey continues to advance a sustainable energy transition and attempts to reach its energy and climate targets.
