Changing Landscape of Modern Day Turkey -- Is Turkey Still a Democratic Republic?

Join us as we open Geo's 128th season with an introduction to our new Executive Director, Dilek Karabucak. Dee received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Marmara University in Istanbul Turkey. After she moved to Philadelphia, she pursued a Master’s of Business Administration degree in Marketing/International Business at Drexel University, and Project Management/Team Leadership certificate from Temple University.

As a native of Turkey, she has witnessed tremendous changes in the country's political and social landscape. There is no question that the country's history is complicated. And in the past decade, many are questioning whether democracy can be maintained.
