Turkey’s Justice and Development Party (AKP), after coming to power in 2002, sought to play a larger diplomatic role in the Middle East. The AKP adopted a proactive foreign policy to create ‘strategic depth’ by expanding Turkey’s zone of influence in the region, drawing on the opportunities of geography, economic power and imperial history to reconnect the country with its historical hinterland. Yet despite early promise, this policy came undone after the Arab upheavals of 2011 and has seen Turkey increasingly at odds with its neighbours and the West. Turkey's New Foreign Policy outlines the key tenets of the AKP’s policy of strategic depth in the Middle East and how this marks a departure from traditional Turkish foreign policy. Particular attention is focused on the Turkish reaction to the political changes that swept through the Arab world – including the Syrian civil war – and presented Turkey with its most significant foreign-policy challenge to date. Based on extensive primary research of Turkish-language sources, this monograph argues that political changes in the Middle East have precipitated a serious decline in Turkish regional influence, reversing earlier gains in influence after the AKP came to power. However, despite these foreign-policy defeats, the AKP has shown little indication that it is willing to scale back its ambitions, insisting that it stands on the right side of history – drawing a clear distinction between Turkey and the West.

The Mediterranean space, defined by a major sea, a large number of littoral countries and to some extent their hinterlands, is at the same time an interface between Europe, Africa and Asia. This brings complex challenges in terms of achieving peace and stability. Recently it has received intense international attention through the internal destructiveness and spill-over from conflicts, primarily those waged in Libya, Syria and, more remotely, Iraq. This Handbook provides an overview of the political processes that shape the Mediterranean region in the contemporary context. It explores the issues of crucial importance to Mediterranean dynamics through a series of analytical sections that guide the reader towards a comprehensive understanding of the main regional interactions and trends. The Handbook explores: the complex historical formation of the contemporary Mediterranean geopolitical perspectives issues around peace and conflict the political economy of the region the role of non-state actors and social movements societal and cultural trends. The wide range of contributions from many of the leading academic experts on the region offers not only insights into the debates and processes that structure each theme, but also key pointers for a more general understanding of how distinct political, economic, social and cultural dynamics interact across the region. It will therefore be a key resource for policy-makers and students and scholars of Mediterranean politics and international relations.

This book offers a discursive analysis of the Turkish Foreign Policy on Humanitarian Interventions (HI) and the doctrine of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P). Across the chapters the author addresses important questions, such as: what is the position of the HI and R2P in the Turkish foreign policy discourse? Is there any variation between cases when it comes to the use of these concepts? How do these discourses shape/change/transform or sustain the Turkish identity? Despite the tendency in some countries to incorporate HI and R2P principles into their foreign policy (UK, Netherlands, Canada, Japan), and the fact that some countries are lobbying to make these principles a part of international or UN law, in the developing world these policies and concepts have not gained widespread recognition or approval. Countries like China, Brazil and India approach these concepts with suspicion or with reservation. The same tendency can be observed in the MENA region and in some parts of Africa and Asia. In this book, the author looks at the reasons behind these differences in approach and explores how the concept of identity affects Turkish foreign policy specifically. This study is invaluable for researchers and students of R2P and HI and foreign policy discourse in general.

In Media in New Turkey, Bilge Yesil unlocks the complexities surrounding and penetrating today's Turkish media. Yesil focuses on a convergence of global and domestic forces that range from the 1980 military coup to globalization's inroads and the recent resurgence of political Islam. Her analysis foregrounds how these and other forces become intertwined, and she uses Turkey's media to unpack the ever-more-complex relationships. Yesil confronts essential questions regarding: the role of the state and military in building the structures that shaped Turkey's media system; media adaptations to ever-shifting contours of political and economic power; how the far-flung economic interests of media conglomerates leave them vulnerable to state pressure; and the ways Turkey's politicized judiciary criminalizes certain speech. Drawing on local knowledge and a wealth of Turkish sources, Yesil provides an engrossing look at the fault lines carved by authoritarianism, tradition, neoliberal reform, and globalization within Turkey's increasingly far-reaching media.

This book is a comprehensive analysis of Turkish foreign policy through the concept of “middle power”. The author explores why and how Turkey has constructed middle power identity based on liberal foreign policies, in order to illuminate the change in post-Cold War Turkish state identity in relation to foreign policy behaviors. The author further explores state identity and how changes of circumstances, norms, state self-perception, and the perceptions of others effects that identity. This is done first through a policy analysis of Turgut Özal, Necmettin Erbakan and İsmail Cem and second through an examination of AKP’s foreign policy experiences and ideas, especially in relation to Ahmet Davutoğlu.

Rüdiger Lohlker schöpft in seiner Darstellung aktuellen dschihadistischen Denkens hauptsächlich aus arabischen Originalquellen. Die Besonderheit seiner Analyse des schriftlichen und audiovisuellen, vor allem im Internet verbreiteten Propagandamaterials liegt darin, dass der religiöse Anspruch des IS ernst genommen wird, ohne ihn als Ausdruck des Islams im Allgemeinen zu nehmen. Damit bietet er notwendiges Wissen, um das Phänomen IS in seinem Kern zu verstehen.

Medikamente stellen nur ruhig, was aber hält den Kontakt zu dem, den man pflegt. Sporadische Zuwendung verwirrt vielmehr als sie hilft oder tröstet. Der Demenzcode verschafft einfachsten Zugang zum erkrankten Angehörigen und bietet eine Anregung, um als Angehöriger oder Pflegender ein System der Verlässlichkeit und Sicherheit für den Betroffenen zu entwickeln. So steigert sich Lebensqualität und Lebensfreude deutlich. Wandeln Sie Pflichtbewusstsein in eine völlig neue Beziehung! Der Kern, das Wesen des Menschen tritt hervor, man erkennt die Einfachheit des Seins und was der Mensch wirklich braucht. Das ist die Zuwendung, Achtung und Liebe eines anderen Menschen, auch und gerade in dieser Krankheit.

Wann immer in der Welt islamistische Terroristen ihr Unheil anrichten, ist Guido Steinbergs Einschätzung gefragt. In seinem Buch erklärt der renommierte Terrorexperte die derzeit gefürchtetste islamistische Organisation – IS oder Islamischer Staat. Sie kam scheinbar aus dem Nichts und versetzte innerhalb kürzester Zeit eine ganze Region in Angst und Schrecken. Und mit der Enthauptung von Geiseln vor laufenden Kameras fordert sie den Westen heraus. Doch sind unsere Staaten überhaupt in der Lage, die von IS drohenden Übergriffe und Terroranschläge wirksam abzuwehren?
