This book focuses on the changing role of Türkiye in today's world. Once considered to be merely a middle power, increasing engagement by Türkiye in current international affairs speaks to the reality of Türkiye’s new position. Türkiye has moved away from reacting to a new place in the 21st century as an actor. Fatima Gülhan Abushanab argues that today's Türkiye, both part of the West and the East, is a deal broker, game changer, mediator, facilitator and much more. This book sheds light to the evidence depicting Türkiye's new status by providing examples from recent history.
Dr. Fatima Gulhan Abushanab serves as an advisor to the President of the Republic of Türkiye and teaches at the international relations department at Ankara Yıldırım Beyazıt University.
