Since the end of the Cold War, Turkey has moved from the periphery to the center of Eurasian security. It is an important member of NATO and aspires to join the European Union. With a landmass and population larger than that of France, Turkey is a pivotal actor in Southeastern Europe, the Middle East, and the Caucasus. Turkey’s growing role in these regions has profound implications for the international arena and has spawned debates over the trajectory of Turkish foreign policy. The Future of Turkish Foreign Policy explores these debates and the interactions between Turkey’s domestic issues and foreign policies. The contributors include some of the foremost scholars and commentators on Turkish foreign policy. Their analyses reveal the variety and complexity of challenges that confront Turkish foreign policy and point the way to creative and resourceful strategies.
