Turkish foreign policy in Davutoğlu ERA: a critical assessment
Öget, Mustafa (2019) Turkish foreign policy in Davutoğlu ERA: a critical assessment. [Thesis]
This thesis aims to investigate the concept of mediation and how it is implemented on Turkish foreign policy. What mainly considered in this thesis are the motives behind Turkey’s mediation attempts, the progress of mediation processes and finally the consequences that had been experienced in the ends of selected mediation cases. In order to figure out these processes correctly and to make objective interpretations, first, international conflict resolution methods have been defined. Secondly, by taking its theoretical and historical backgrounds, the similarities and differences of ‘mediation’ among the other methods have been clarifıed. Thirdly, the implementation of ‘mediation’ to foreign policy approaches is taken into consideration and the components of mediation which are published by the United Nations are demonstrated. Fourthly, while taking the motives of Turkey’s mediation into consideration, it is debated that to what extent Turkey could adopt these components to the mediation cases in which Turkey have participated particularly in between Israel - Syria and the US - Iran. In the end, in addition to these components, impacts of the other internal and external variables on the selected mediation processes are taken into account in order to provide more reasonable explanations for both the reasons and consequences of these mediation attempts.
