Islamic Norms and Values in International Relations and Their Reinterpretation in AKP-Governed Turkey

  • Lili Yulyadi Arnakim


The relationship between Islam and the state has been extensively written on by many scholars.1 Islam is a comprehensive way of life with a worldview and a system in which religion and state are not separated.2 It believes that public life, or the state, should embrace Islamic values.
