This series aims to combine several theories of international relations with topical and current world events.
Questions are raised about democracy, privacy, terrorism, conflicts, feminism, foreign policy and more. In the first two lectures, Krommendijk will join Erdogan.
They will enter into engaging and lively debate with one another and with the audience. One side explains an argument, and the other questions it with provocative and well-founded criticisms and arguments. In this series, there is plenty of interaction between the speakers and the
participants.
