    Uluslararası ilişkilerde devletlerin dış politika kararlarında kamuoyu desteğini almaları önemlidir. İktidarlar, dış politika kararlarında kamuoyunun desteğini alabilmek adına sık sık propaganda yoluna başvururlar. Propagandanın temel aracı ise medyadır. Medya için geniş kitleleri etkileyen dış politika haberlerinde, milliyetçilikten bağımsız, tarafsız yayıncılık yapması oldukça güçtür.

    Authors:Özyer, Berkan
    Publisher and Date:(Kadir Has University, 2019)
    Since 1979, Iran and Syria have succeeded to maintain a very long-lasting alliance despite many changes in the regional and international order.

This study questions the basics and ...

  • Russian and Turkish Foreign Policy Activism in the Syrian Theater

This article argues that risk uncertainty and imperfect information are not necessarily external unwanted or unforeseen factors in foreign policy decisions.

    Security relations with the US have been critical for Turkey. Cold War strategic imperatives dictated typical bandwagoning policies although disagreements and frictions were present at times. In the 2000s a combination of domestic developments and rapidly changing regional security patterns has resulted in a more assertive Turkish regional security policy which for many represents a departure from traditional Kemalist principles.
