Turkey in Africa: A New Emerging Power? (Routledge Studies in African Politics and International Rela) (Paperback)
This book offers a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary analysis of Turkey-Africa relations.
Bringing together renowned authors to discuss various dimensions of Turkey's African engagement while casting a critical analysis on the sustainability of Turkey-Africa relations, this book draws upon the rising power literature to examine how Turkish foreign policy has been conceptualized and situated theoretically. Moving from an examination of the multilateral dimension of Turkey's Africa policy with a focus on soft power instruments of public diplomacy, humanitarian/development assistance, religious activities and airline diplomacy, it then illuminates the economic and military dimensions of Turkey's policy including trade relations, business practices, security cooperation and peacekeeping discourse. Overall, it shows how Turkey's African opening can be integrated into its wider interest in gaining global power status and its desire to become a strong regional power.
This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of Turkish foreign policy/politics, African politics, and more broadly to international relations.
