Discussion: Turkey terror attacks

In the days after Turkey’s Istanbul Ataturk International Airport was hit by terrorist attacks that left 43 people dead and more than 140 wounded, Turkish officials announced that the three men who carried out the attacks were of Russian, Uzbek and Kyrgyz nationality. Why has no terrorist group stepped up to claim responsibility? Why has Turkey experienced increased attacks in recent months, and is it possible to prevent more? Current security precautions seem to have had little impact. Should anti-Islamic State campaign strategy be re-considered across the region? Join us for an in-depth discussion with Yan Shuai, analyst at the Anti-Terrorism Center at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations; in Washington DC, Bulent Aliriza, Director and Senior Associate of the Turkey Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies; and in Istanbul, Savas Bicer, Instructor at Istanbul Esenyurt University and a lecturer at the Institute for Strategic Research at the Turkish War College.
