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.
