On Wednesday, October 3, 2019, THO hosted H.E.  Fatma Sahin , Mayor of Gaziantep and President of the Union of Municipalities of Turkey.
Mayor Sahin discussed local governance and migration flux, given the large number of refugees the city of Gaziantep has accepted. The conversation provided an opportunity for attendees to also hear about pressing issues such as the safe-area zone proposal in Northern Syria, as well as the current state of U.S.-Turkey relations. Mayor Sahin provided an analysis of her city’s efforts to assist the large number of refugees it has been hosting, but also the effort of Turkey in whole. The invitation-only roundtable included a number of U.S. government officials, such as those from Department of State, Department of Defense, and Homeland Security, amongst others. Representatives from a number of NGO’s, think thanks, and academia were present as well.
