Abstract

Turkish foreign policy is assertive, active and even overly proactive in some areas. It has a substantial soft-power contribution to stability, with an important economic dimension. The politics of identity pursued by AKP, revolving around conservative democracy, enabled the expansion of Turkey’s economic and political space in the region. There is an opportunity provided by the dynamics of globalization for developing countries to step up to a most central global role. In light of the adjusted role of the West and the transformation of the Turkish state, this article provides an overview of the policy framework of Ankara’s foreign affairs activism for the next decade.
