Post 9/11 international system has brought in new challenges and dilemmas for particular states. Turkey has been amongst those states, bracing itself from numerous challenges and debacles introduced by such a long list of events as the Iraqi-War or the Syrian Unrest to name but a few. These highly divisive and controversial events not only put foreign policy decision-makers between a rock and a hard place, it also makes an urgent call for investigating the continuities, ruptures and reconstructions in the Turkish foreign policy behavior in the face of such events. This special issue seeks to examine the main dynamics, actors and changes in preference-ranking in Turkeys new foreign policy from different conceptual analytical and theoretical perspectives by inquiring into such questions as:
What is "new" in Turkish foreign policy?
Who are the new foreign policy making actors?
What are the national and international dynamics that give rise to such a transformation in foreign policy?
What are the empirical cases of Turkeys new foreign policy?
What are the main criticisms against the newfound ruptures and reconstructions in Turkeys foreign policy behavior?
