Title:Political economy of regional power: Turkey under the AKP PDF Logo
Authors:Bank, André

Issue Date:2012
Series/Report no.:GIGA Working Papers 204
Abstract:In 2006/2007 Turkey became a regional power in the Middle East, a status it has continued to maintain in the context of the Arab Spring. To understand why Turkey only became a regional power under the Muslim AKP government and why this happened at the specific point in time that it did, the paper highlights the self-reinforcing dynamics between Turkey's domestic political-economic transformation in the first decade of this century and the advantageous regional developments in the Middle East at the same time. It concludes that this specific linkage - the Ankara Moment - and its regional resonance in the neighboring Middle East carries more transformative potential than the Washington Consensus or the Beijing Consensus so prominently discussed in current Global South politics.
