TURKEY: Repairing the relationship with the West
For over eight decades from the foundation of the Turkish Republic in 1923, the Turkish leadership oriented its policies to the West. With frontiers to the Soviet Union, it became one of the earliest members of NATO in 1952. But its long-standing aspiration to join the European Union has been rebuffed, its efforts to protect Turkish citizens of Cyprus have been falsely described, it has suffered decades of terrorism and has given refuge to millions of Syrians fleeing conflict. Now President Erdogan’s dealings with Russia, his seemingly Islamist agenda and sympathy for the Muslim Brotherhood, his Kurdish policy, and his heavy-handed treatment of political opponents have created an abrasive relationship and tensions with Western friends and erstwhile allies in the Middle East including Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. As the democracies become more conscious of the struggles ahead and the need for solidarity and strong allies in an increasingly dangerous world, Turkey should be firmly back on board. What needs to be done?

Iran and Their Proxies: The Current Situation
Throughout the 2020 the topic of future relations with Iran was at the forefront of discussion. The Trump administration planned to continue their hard stance against the regime, while then candidate Biden emphasized the need to revisit diplomatic talks and possibly a JCPOA redux. Following the loss of President Trump in the 2020 election, Iran and its proxies have taken an aggressive approach within the region and U.S. interests. Most recently setting a hard line with their commitment to restart (or continue) their unfettered nuclear program, and missile attacks against U.S. interests in Erbil, Kurdistan and in Baghdad, Iraq. Listen as the Gold Institute for International Strategy hosts an interactive briefing with our senior fellows about the current situation in Iran.

The Nuclear Impasse: The Geopolitical Stalemate Between the U.S. and Iran
It's a diplomatic version of Catch-22 being played out in an international scale. The U.S. says Iran must return to the negotiating table - and full compliance - before it lifts sanctions. Tehran says the U.S. needs to lift sanctions before it even thinks about pulling up a chair. America insists Iran concede first. Iran insists the more America procrastinates, the more it stands to lose. Meanwhile, Rouhani only has a few months left in office and with a "hardliner" expected to be elected the next president in June, the future of the deal is uncertain.
So what's next? Will Joe Biden be able to convince his domestic audience to make concessions after Iran so boldly contravened parts of the agreement? And can Tehran push an agreement through before those who've long resisted it, take power? Is the deal worth saving? Does an Iranian policy shift depend on the differences between a so-called "moderate" or "hardliner" elected in June?
