PhD Student Matt Cohen publishes paper with Charles Freilich
February 14, 2014
Matt Cohen, a PhD student in the Department, has recently published a paper with Charles Freilich, titled "Breakdown and Possible Restart: Turkish-Israeli Relations under the AKP," in the Israel Journal of Foreign Affairs. It argues that while Israel wanted to restore ties following a 2010 botched Israeli raid on a Turkish flotilla, the AKP had desired the breakdown in relations since it came to power and worked to make sure it occurred. They then argue that ties are unlikely to return to the fairly friendly relationship the two nations had enjoyed despite the recent thaw, thanks to Obama's mediation. Click here
