    The Turkish-American bilateral relationship has its roots in Cold War cooperation. After committing a sizable number of combat divisions to the Korean War in 1950, Turkey was formally admitted to NATO in 1952. Since then, the US and Turkey have collaborated in numerous regional and global security initiatives.

    However, since the onset of the Arab Uprisings and heightened instability in the near and Middle East, Turkey’s relationship with the United States has come under increased strain, owing largely to divergent policies that have eroded trust and undermined cooperation.
    To what extent has the US-Turkish relationship suffered irreparable harm?
    Are there ways that the partnership can be rebuilt?
