Turkish Foreign Policy (PSIR306)

The course surveys the main characteristics of Turkish foreign policy towards its neighbors, with the important global actors as well as with global events in the 20th and 21st centuries. Turkey’s bid for the EU membership and the protracted Cyprus conflict will take special attention in this course as the two showcases. The main focus of the course is on the reactions (and interactions) of Turkish foreign policy to (with) the changing nature of the post-Cold War international relations as well as post-9/11 international environment where the we witnessed dramatic impact on the whole international political system – and hence the attempt of the AKP (Justice and Development Party) government in devising a new Turkish foreign policy to cope with this international environment.
