On 21 September 2019, on the day of World Peace Day, DPI held a roundtable meeting on ‘Supporting inclusive dialogue at a challenging time in Turkey’. The meeting was attended by previous members of the Wise People Committee and a senior governmental adviser, a politician, as well as a former ambassador. Participants reflected on the Turkish solution process, particularly in the light of their own experiences and contributions as members of the Wise People Committee and as politicians. Participants also considered how lessons learnt from past experiences can be applied when evaluating the current “parked” process in the country. They considered what can be done now to support continuing dialogue and promote conflict resolution and democratization in Turkey. This roundtable was part of a series of activities planned in the context of the project: ‘Supporting inclusive dialogue at a challenging time in Turkey’, supported by the EU and the Irish, Netherlands and Norwegian governments.
