Turkey recap is an independent, reader-supported news platform created to help observers, analysts and the rest of us make sense of the fast-paced Turkey news cycle.

We launched our flagship English-language newsletter in Oct. 2019 and have since expanded our publications with a Turkish-language newsletter and a variety of news tracking tools available to Turkey recap members.

Turkey recap is produced by journalists Gonca Tokyol, Ingrid Woudwijk, Verda Uyar and Batuhan Üsküp. Diego Cupolo is the managing editor and co-founded the platform with Raziye Akkoc. This website was made by Oğul Köseoğlu.
