The British Association for Turkish Area Studies

Recent foreign policy behavior, characterized by an anti-Western orientation, has become increasingly assertive and aggressive. The pendulum of Turkish foreign policy has been shifting towards the Russia-China axis.

How do we explain the dramatic shift in Turkish foreign policy over the course of the past decade?
