Australia Turkey Connections: Traders, Foes and Citizens

  • Christine Inglis


Contacts between nations range from high-level, formal inter-governmental contacts to less formal everyday contacts involving their respective populations. The intensity and duration of such contacts vary as do their underlying nature and location. This chapter outlines three phases in the relations between Australia and Turkey and their peoples. While the focus is on the contacts and relations involving individuals and their local communities, these are extensively influenced by the wider context provided by international politics and relations.
