07 Mayıs Perşembe 2015, 272 sayfa

Consequently, foreign affairs practically replaced foreign policy.
One could criticize the foreign policy approaches that influenced post-Ottoman Turkish elites. Considering the circumstances of this period, however, there is little doubt that isolationism was not just a policy decision. At a time when the Sykes-Picot borders emerged in the Middle East, the Ottoman Empire was unable to meet political and economic challenges. The contemporary foreign policy debate in Turkey, in this regard, deals with the question of whether or not the country ought to stand guard over the Sykes-Picot regime, which cannot be simply given up nor an obligation immune to change. There is nothing odd about those, who failed to grasp that the people and governments of the Middle East were going through a Sykes-Picot century and mistook the obligatory stance for an ideal policy, rushed back to twentieth-century reflexes when the first signs of change surfaced.

In this sense, the study entitled Turkey and the Crisis of Sykes-Picot Order: From Foreign Relations to Foreign Policy attempts to provide a multi-dimensional account of Turkish foreign policy during the thirteen years of AK Party rule.

The party, which remains undefeated to this day, came to be known as a reformist movement in Turkish politics. The AK Party years thus marked a period of major ruptures and transformation in key issues.

A number of key issues represented the main items on the nation’s agenda during the 13 years of transformation between 2002 and 2015. This book includes several articles engaging the 2002 revolution in chronological and logical order
