Choosing Turkey's Future: 2014 Upcoming Elections
A Discussion led by Madeline Sposato

Thursday, July 24, 2014
The IVY Club
5102 North Galena Road
Peoria Heights, IL

Join us for something different from your World Affairs Council!
Sparked by the Twitter ban, Turkish citizens, including students studying abroad, were motivated to a new level of political participation.  With this heightened sense of shaping their political future, followed closely by the Soma mine incident, Turks look toward the August 10 elections with a wide variety of perspectives.  Madeline Sposato, a student at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Affairs, conducted a series of interviews with Turkish students.  Join us as she plays clips from these interviews and leads a discussion of what the people of Turkey might expect from their presidential election.

This is an informal event - a fun way to learn about the world! 
Plan to order from the IVY Club's terrific menu by 5:30 pm if you wish to join us for dinner.  Madeline's discussion will begin at 6:30 pm.   
Please RSVP by July 20 so that we know how many tables to hold for our group. 
Call (309) 677-2454 or pawac@bradley.edu.
