Understanding Turkey’s Foreign Policy in a Changing World

(p.296) 11 Ambitions of Grandeur
China, The United States, and the Future of Central Asia

This chapter looks at Turkish foreign policy. In recent years, Turkey—with its combination of economic pragmatism and soft power appeal as a Muslim-majority secular democracy with a conservative and pious Muslim leader—has fared much better compared to other Muslim-majority nations in global affairs. Discarding its former policies of disengagement in international politics, Turkey has transformed into a truly global player whose reach now extends beyond its geographic neighborhood. Indeed, Turkey has emerged in the twenty-first century stronger than it has ever been in its modern history, evolving from a peripheral player into Europe's most dynamic actor and economy.

Keywords:   Turkish foreign policy, Turkey, Muslim-majority secular democracy, international politics, Ankara
