Changes in Türkiye’s Perception of International Regions and Main Reasons
School of Political Science and Public Administration, Shandong University
Since the establishment of the Turkish Republic, it has two options for the international regions, “westward” and “eastward”, one of which has dominated at different times in its history. The change of the Republic of Turkey’s Perception of International Regions encompasses the period from Kemal to the post-Kemal era, from a ’westward’ to an ’eastward’ strategy, from a Euro-Western focus to a return to the Middle East-Islamic world. Turkey regional perspective is rooted in its national characteristics including geography, history, and ethnicity, religion and language, while the core reason for the specific changes is national interests. Nowadays, as a regional power, Turkey is on its way to becoming a global power. With some regional achievements, it sees itself as the centre of Eurasia-Africa and works on a comprehensive regional cooperation strategy. However, Turkey is not strong enough to support its ambitions, which might cause new problems in the future.
