Brigadier General (Retd.) Christos Minagias
EMF Conference 5-7 December 2016
Since the Justice and Development Party was brought into power in 2002, Turkey’s foreign policy has experienced significant changes. O
n the one hand it strengthened the sense of unity and harmony within the country and helped develop its soft power. However, in the recent years rapid changes have occurred in Turkey which have put into question policies implemented by the Erdogan regime. Analysing the latest developments in Turkey, the rise and fall, as well as the vision of its foreign policy, Christos Minagias attempts to answer such questions as: Is Turkey drifting away from the West? Why is it collapsing so fast? What are the prospects for the future?
