Ein turbulentes Jahrzehnt – Die Türkei 2008-2018

  • Magdalena KirchnerEmail author
Jubiläumsbeitrag

Zusammenfassung

Aus Sicht der Türkei war das vergangene Jahrzehnt eine Periode des Wandels, einerseits durch einen neu entdeckten Gestaltungswillen in der eigenen Nachbarschaft, andererseits bestimmt durch Faktoren, auf die Ankara selbst nur wenig Einfluss nehmen konnte. Parallel dazu und doch immer mit außenpolitischen Fragen verzahnt, haben sich auch das innenpolitische Gefüge des Landes und die Gesellschaft selbst stark verändert. Der Beitrag nimmt Ursachen und Dynamiken dieser Entwicklungen in den Blick.

A Decade of Turbulence: Turkey 2008–2018

Abstract

From Turkey’s point of view, the past decade has been a period of change if not turbulence. On the one hand, Ankara demonstrated an unprecedented determination to engage and shape its neighborhood, yet, on the other hand, was exposed to dynamics over which it had little control or influence. In parallel to this and yet always interlinked with foreign policy trajectories, Turkey‘s domestic political system and the society itself have undergone fundamental changes. The article examines causes and dynamics of these developments.
