Project

The relevance of this study is based on the assumption that there are several works about Turkey’s foreign policy but almost all are focused on official diplomacy or track one. This research will seek not only to demonstrate how track II diplomacy is one of the main tenet of Turkish strategy in international affairs, but also enlightened the original use of it by Turkey. Indeed, differing from the traditional understanding, however, Turkey unconventionally applied “track II diplomacy” to both post-conflict and non-conflict scenarios.
