The ATAA Capital Forum is proud to bring to you the opinions of experts on Turkish foreign affairs, politics, economics, and security as discussed at events throughout the nation. An important mission of the ATAA is to support education on issues of importance to U.S.-Turkish relations and Turkish Americans. Turkey is one of the most discussed countries at the nation’s capital and America’s leading cities -- and for good reason! Strategically located in Anatolia, the Turkish Republic has transformed from a frontier state to a regional keystone, connecting Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia in an increasingly complex and challenging world. With a predominately Muslim population of over 70 million, Turkey is one of the world’s most successful secular democracies and economies.
