Abstract

The concept of security is treated as one of the key and central concepts of Turkish foreign policy (TFP) which consequentially attracted a focus of academic studies on it. In line with this focus, the debates highlighted and focused different discourses assuming that discourses reflected the respective period with its distinctive decision and narration of that decision. If that foreign policy decision was regarded as materialization of thoughts into actions, then it can also be suggested that foreign policy decision inherently consists of strategy. Security strategy—strategy relevant to security realm—is also an indispensable part of Turkish foreign policy.
