Il ‘percorso speciale’ della Nuova Turchia: dalla corsa agli standard europei alle nuove ambizioni internazionali
MetadataShow full item record
Despite the last 18 years of single-coloured government led by AKP (Justice and Development Party), over the last five years Turkey seems to have redefined its political and strategic objectives. At first with its eyes turned to the West, Turkey is now a solitary power. The failure of the ceasefire with the Kurds in 2015 and the attempted coup in 2016, have launched a domestic propaganda on the need for a strong and autonomous state. Turkey no longer seems willing to subcontract its policy to the constraints of transatlantic institutions or to EU standards. A «New Turkey», as defined by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, able to cope with internal and external enemies, and with a strong leader who aims at restoring its lost international greatness and role. In this constantly evolving scenario, this contribution is therefore intended to look through the fundamental stages of this special path, and with its possible future scenarios.
