IS THE TURKISH DEFENCE INDUSTRY READY FOR SHANGHAI?(29.12.2016)

Is the Turkish Defence Industry Ready for Shanghai?

Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is a rising star in the East. While its development has similarities with the European Union, it also has its own exclusive peculiarities. Both the People's Republic of China and Russia have experienced ideological issues and faced with border violations after World War II. After the end of Cold War however, both countries have realised that the barren rivalry between the two hurt both of them the same. With the structuring they made in 1996, the People's Republic of China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan has announced themselves to the world as the Shanghai Five. The Shanghai Five emerged as a reaction to ...


TURKEY-IRAN RELATIONS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF JULY 15(19.10.2016)

Turkey-Iran Relations From the Perspective of July 15

In line with their geopolitical locations, historical backgrounds and strategic aims, Iran and Turkey have been two historically important countries in the region as two neighbour countries with different systems of government. These two medium-sized countries with a legacy of imperialism have become targets for countries outside of the region due their capability to influence regional developments. In these days where we experience change of borders and regimes in the Middle East, especially with regards to the issues of regional stability and security affairs, Iran and Turkey have been forced into cooperation despite the regional rivalry between the two countries. In this w...

IRAN AND RUSSIA - FALSE ALLIES (21.04.2016)

Iran and Russia - False Allies

Relations among countries are not that simple, just like relations among people. Many believe that Russia and Iran are allies, although, a more detailed analysis reveals that is far from being true.  The relations between the two countries have its pitfalls, inconspicuous at first sight. Russia sees itself as one of the world's superpowers, and Iran believes that it is a regional power. Although, Russia's status as a global superpower is debatable, one cannot argue with the fact of Iran's regional leadership (in the Gulf region).   Both sides are trying to hide the problems between Iran and Russia as much as possible, but, at tim...


HOW SHOULD THE REALPOLITIK OF TURKISH FOREIGN POLICY BE?(4.04.2016)

How Should the Realpolitik of Turkish Foreign Policy Be?

Bismarck is one of the most important representatives of the concept of Realpolitik in foreign policy literature in the 20th century. In the process of the foundation of Germany, 39 German states have come together under the German Federation roof, following the leadership of Otto von Bismarck. Even though it is appreciated that he assembled 39 states under the same roof, the criticism that Bismarck did not take the domestic public opinion during the “unification” process is often argued.
