“New Turkey” in the Context of “Moderate Islam”


Abstract: In this article, the Turkish Foreign Policy is analysed through new concepts such as “regional influence” and “cultural relations”. Turkey’s founding principles are based on rationalism, secularism, and Westernisation. In the early years of the AKP, the European Union (EU) and the United States (US) supported so called “Muslim Democrats” or “Moderate Islam” approaches. However, it is argued that the AKP era is structurally contradicted with the Western and global system.

Keywords: New Turkey, Moderate Islam, AKP.

AKP as a new step for Islamism
