U.S.-Turkey Relations: A New PartnershipReport of a CFR-Sponsored Independent Task Force
Independent Task Force reports are consensus documents that offer analysis and policy prescriptions for major U.S. foreign policy issues facing the United States, developed through private and nonpartisan deliberations among a group of high-level experts.
The Task Force asserts that Turkey is an increasingly influential regional and economic power and calls for the United States and Turkey to forge a new partnership. The report provides analysis and recommendations to policymakers and others on the U.S.-Turkish relationship; Turkey's role within NATO; its relations in the Middle East, Europe, and elsewhere; its place in the global economy; and its political and social development; among other important issues.
