The rise of Turkey : the twenty-first century's first Muslim power by Soner Çaǧaptay( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turkey is positioned to become the twenty-first century{u2019}s first Muslim power. Based on a dynamic economy and energetic foreign policy, Turkey{u2019}s growing engagement with other countries has made it a key player in the newly emerging multidirectional world order. Turkey{u2019}s trade patterns and societal interaction with other nations have broadened and deepened dramatically in the past decade, transforming Turkey from a Cold War outpost into a significant player internationally. Turkey{u2019}s ascendance and the changes that have taken place under the leadership of Turkey{u2019}s Muslim conservative government have prompted its policymakers to craft a new vision of their role in twenty-first century society. This developing worldview animates Turkey{u2019}s desire to sometimes take the lead with its co-religionists and occasionally challenge its partners in the West, while showing no inclination to become an irresponsible rising power. If it can consolidate liberal democracy at home, Turkey could also assume the role of serving as an example for the newly emerging governments brought about by the Arab Spring. The cornerstone of Turkey{u2019}s rise has been the government{u2019}s ability to foster stable political conditions for economic growth, alongside a foreign policy that balances Turkey{u2019}s Muslim identity with its Western overlay, including its strong ties to the United States. Accordingly, policies that could tarnish Turkey{u2019}s reputation as a bastion of stability risk undermining its position between Europe, the United States, and the Middle East. This realization has been the catalyst for Ankara{u2019}s careful management of Eastern and Western desires and expectations. The result is a new Turkey: a twenty-first-century Muslim power that promotes stability without the confines of a regional European rubric. --Provided by publisher
Islam, secularism, and nationalism in modern Turkey : who is a Turk? by Soner Çaǧaptay( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and Turkish and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Common wisdom argues that in the interwar period, Kemalist secularism was very successful in eliminating religion from the public sphere in Turkey, leaving Turkish national identity devoid of religious content. However, Islam, Secularism, and Nationalism in Modern Turkey reaches another conclusion through an investigation of the impact of the Ottoman millet system on Turkish and Balkan nationalism. It demonstrates that even though Mustafa Kemal Ataturk successfully secularized Turkey's political structure in the interwar period, the legacy of the Ottoman millet system, which divided the Ottoman population into religious compartments called millets, shaped Turkey's understanding of nationalism in the same era."--Jacket
The new sultan : Erdogan and the crisis of modern Turkey by Soner Çaǧaptay( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Turkey will play a critical geopolitical role in the events of the Middle East. After the attempted coup of July 2016, the spotlight is on Recep Tayyip Erdogan - the powerful leader of the country whose increasingly authoritarian regime has heightened tensions both within and outside the country. Erdogan's crackdown on dissent has been brutal and consistent - hundreds of journalists arrested, academics officially banned from leaving the country, university deans fired and nearly half of the highest-ranking army officers in custody. As opponents accuse his Justice and Development Party (AKP) of heavy-handedness, Erdogan promises to bring order and stability under a 'strongman'. Here, leading Turkish expert Soner Cagaptay looks at where Erdogan comes from in Turkish history, what he believes in, and how he has cemented his rule. The New Sultan tells the story of the increasingly Islamic turkey Erdogan has built, and assesses the threats he faces - from the liberal youth to the Gulen movement, the army plotters and the fallout from the Kurdish question."--Jacket flap

"The spotlight will inevitably be on Erdogan - the powerful leader of the country - whose increasingly bizarre and authoritarian regime has increased tensions enormously both within and outside the country. His crackdown has been brutal and consistent - thousands of journalists arrested, academics officially banned from leaving the country, university deans fired and three quarters of highest ranking army officers arrested.In some senses, this coup has given Erdogan the license to make good on his repeated promise to bring order and stability under a 'strongman'. Here, leading Turkish expert Soner Cagaptay will look at where Erdogan comes from in Turkish history, what he believes in, how he has cemented his rule will assess the threats he faces - from the liberal youth to the Gulen movement, the army plotters and the Kurdish question"--Publisher's description

The new Turkey and U.S. policy by Soner Çaǧaptay( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Turkey moves toward municipal, presidential, and parliamentary elections over the next three years, all signs point to the ruling Justice and Development Party retaining power for another decade and continuing its effort to mold the country in its Islamist image. Even so, the new Turkey seems destined to retain the diversity that sets it apart from other regional states: a bit Islamist, a bit secularist, a bit conservative, and a bit Western. This presents Washington with a unique set of opportunities, but taking advantage of them will require a fuller understanding of the nuances underlying Turkish society and politics. This report offers a comprehensive survey of the issues shaping the country's domestic and foreign policies at a time of booming economic prospects at home and continued Arab turbulence abroad. From dealing with Iran and Syria to forging consensus with increasingly formidable opposition blocs at home, the AKP faces challenges that will likely steer it in a different direction from other Muslim-majority countries even as it seeks to become a regional power
The impact of Syria's refugees on southern Turkey by Soner Çaǧaptay( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study will analyze the impact of the Syrian refugees in the five southern Turkish provinces bordering Syria--Gaziantep, Hatay, Kilis, Mardin, and Sanliurfa--where 622,864 of the 747,000 registered refugees are concentrated. In other words, these five provinces collectively host 83 percent of Turkey's registered Syrian refugees. This study will refer only to registered refugees in these provinces, since estimates of unregistered refugees are unavailable
Turkey's new political landscape : implications of the 2011 elections( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 12, 2011, Turkey's Justice and Development Party (AKP) won the country's parliamentary elections for the third consecutive time since 2002, receiving 49.9% of the overall vote. To fully understand the election results, however, one must study them on a more detailed level. In particular, analyzing the vote from a provincial perspective offers a more complete picture of the new demographic and social factors shaping the Turkish electoral landscape. Toward that end, this study dissects and maps the support bases of the country's leading parties in order to illuminate past trends and forecast potential near-term political developments. After breaking down each party's national results from June and defining six regions that make up Turkey's electoral geography, the paper analyzes the parties' popular backing in various parts of the country, determining where their local support was higher or lower than their national tally. The paper also describes how voting results in certain regions indicate the emergence of distinct two-party systems, with the AKP and a given opposition faction receiving more than 75% of the vote in each area. In particular, continued migration to Turkey's largest metropolitan areas and coastal provinces, where a two-party system along the AKP vs. CH P axis seems to be emerging, means that this dualism will likely assume a greater role in the country's political system and shape the outcome of future elections

The unexpected vitality of Turkish-Israeli trade by Soner Çaǧaptay( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

May 31 marked the two-year anniversary of the Israeli raid on a flotilla including the Turkish vessel Mavi Marmara that triggered a tailspin in Turkish-Israeli relations. In the aftermath of the flotilla incident, Turkey recalled its ambassador and demanded an apology from Israel as well as reparations for the nine slain activists. Ankara even announced that its warships would escort future missions to Gaza. Turkey has since officially downgraded its diplomatic ties with Israel, and attempts to mend fences have stalled over the issue of an Israeli apology. Yet below the surface, not all is grim in Turkish-Israeli relations. Remarkably, trade ties have been flourishing between the two countries
Turkey's presidential prospects : assessing recent trends by Soner Çaǧaptay( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new four-party system has emerged in Turkey. In this new system, the AKP remains dominant, holding especially strong appeal in rural Turkey, including central and eastern Anatolia, and among the urban working and lower-middle class constituents who carried it to power. The CHP, most prominent among the opposition parties, seems to be building appeal among urban voters, especially those clustered in wealthy Turkish provinces around Istanbul. The traditionally rightist MHP has gained with some disenchanted AKP supporters, along with centrist and center-right voters, especially in the country's middle-income provinces. The BDP, smallest of the four opposition parties and appealing to the Kurdish vote, has less than 7 percent support, but the Kurdish nationalist vote could nonetheless be influential in deciding the August presidential outcome by tipping it toward either the AKP or its opponents. Most BDP support is concentrated in southeastern Turkey
Turkey's changing relations with Iraq : Kurdistan up, Baghdad down by Soner Çaǧaptay( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turkey's ties with the Kurdistan Regional Government in northern Iraq have reached a level unimaginable a few years ago. From rapidly growing business and oil deals to numerous high-level diplomatic visits, Ankara is in the midst of an unprecedented rapprochement with the Iraqi Kurds, one that has come largely at the expense of the Maliki government in Baghdad. This Policy Focus explains how that shift came about and, more important, how much further it might go in terms of pushing Ankara away from Baghdad and toward the Kurds. At a time when the uprising in Syria continues to boil on Turkey's border, they offer a detailed timeline of the changes in the relationship thus far, as well as a practical assessment of what Washington can expect going forward
