The Impact Of The Arab Spring On Turkey's Role And Relations In The Middle East
The foreign policy of Turkey under the AKP administration has been argued to have diverged from the conventional West-oriented direction of the country, followed with few exceptions since the end of World War II. This chapter assesses change and continuity within Turkish Foreign Policy through focusing on the decision-making of the Turkish government towards the Middle East in the aftermath of the Arab Spring. It contests the 'axis shift' thesis by showing that many elements of the West-oriented direction remained intact. The work also examines the transformation of Turkey's role in the Middle Eastern balance of power in recent years as the potential risks and benefits of the Arab Spring are discussed.Telif hakları gereğince yayın erişime kapalıdır.
