The first conference, titled “Debating New Turkey” was held in Washington DC , and the second conference, titled “The Middle East After the Revolution: Arab and Turkish Insights” was held in Cairo on Monday, January 30th.
The “Turkish model” shows that people of the Middle East do not have to choose between an authoritarian government and an Islamist regime. There is a third option, which is a representative and accountable government with free and fair elections.
