Change and Continuity in Turkish Foreign Policy: Evaluating Pre-AKP and AKP Periods’ National Role Conceptions
Türk Dış Politikasında Değişim ve Süreklilik: AKP ve AKP-Öncesi Dönemlerin Ulusal Role Kavramsallaştırmalarını Karşılaştırmak

Mehtap KARA [1] , Ahmet SÖZEN [2]


This article examines Turkish national role conceptions (NRCs) during 1980–2014 based on the policy statements of eighteen Turkish foreign policy-makers. It questions change and continuity in Turkish foreign policy behaviour by evaluating ‘pre-AKP’ and ‘AKP’ (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi) periods. Role theory is employed as theoretical framework to reveal and assess Turkey’s position in global affairs. The NRCs that Turkish foreign policy makers adopted in these periods suggests that there has been both a change and continuity of Turkish foreign policy since 1980.
Bu makale on sekiz Türk dış politika yapıcısının siyasi konuşmalarını inceleyerek 1980-2014 dönemindeki Türk ulusal rol kavramlarını incelemektedir. Aynı zamanda makale de AKP (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi) öncesi ve AKP dönemleri incelenerek Türk dış politikasındaki değişiklik ve süreklilik kavramlarını sorgulamaktadır. Türkiye'nin küresel konumunu değerlendirmek için rol teorisi teorik çerçeve olarak kullanılmıştır. 1980 yılından bu yana Türk dış politikası yapıcılarının benimsediği ulusal rol kavramları Türk dış politikası davranışlarında hem değişikliği hem de sürekliliği ortaya koymaktadır.
