On April 16\, Turkish citizens will vote in a referendum to decide whether they want President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to have even more power than he already does. On April 17\, the Bipartisan Policy Center will convene a panel of experts to interpret the result. \;
 \;
Current polls show an even split between Erdogan's supporters and opponents\, which\, combined with c oncerns over whether the vote itself will be fair\, have created profound uncertainty over the referendum's outcome. While observers worry that if E rdogan succeeds Turkey could descend into de facto dictatorship\, many als o remain concerned about the chaos that could follow in the wake of a defe at. Please join us for a discussion of the outcome of the upcoming referen dum \;and its implications for Turkey\, the region\, and U.S.-Turkey r elations.
