Brief but very insightfull:  Does Turkey have a foreign policy beyond Erdogan’s  whims?


The broad picture of Turkish foreign policy under President Erdoğan is conflicting and seemingly bereft of strong, long-term allies. Of course, a change of leadership in Turkey might change all that.

The world is certainly becoming less ordered and less secure. That may well mean that old alliances break down. But it is a brave middleweight country indeed that would attempt to go it alone in such a volatile region as Turkey’s without the support of states and systems larger and stronger than its own.
