The Recent State of Affairs in Turkish-American Relations: Before and After the “Model Partnership”


Abstract: This study seeks to analyze the recent course of Turkish-American relations within the context of the newly-crafted “model partnership” concept by examining the questions such as how the relationship developed before and after its arrival, what it actually means for both sides and how the bilateral relations can be reconfigured or revived on the basis of this new conceptualization. Its first argument is that Turkish-American relations have been mostly uneasy during the both terms of the Bush presidency while it secondly holds that despite that Turkish Foreign Policy under the ruling Justice and Development Party was seemingly more in line with President Obama’s foreign policy understanding, especially after the beginning of a new era under the model partnership concept, the relations have not reached the expected level since then because of the undefined nature of this partnership in the middle of a debate over whether or not Turkey shifts its axis thanks to its assertive foreign policy goals towards the (Middle) East.

Keywords: Contemporary Turkey-USA Relations, Model Partnership.
