The Turkish-American bilateral relationship has its roots embedded in the Cold War. After committing a sizable number of combat divisions to the Korean War in 1950, Turkey was formally admitted to NATO in 1952. Since this time, 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. So much so, that as of early 2017, the United States imposed an unprecedented measure of issuing a ban on the processing of non-immigrant visas at its US missions in Turkey. To what extent has the US-Turkish relationship suffered irreparable harm and are there ways that the partnership can
be rebuilt?
