Turkey's New Balance

Erdoğan’s Turkey is gaining respect as an indispensable player at both the regional and international levels. During the Justice and Development Party, or AKP, administration, Turkey has undergone many internal transformations, involving crucial issues such as the role played by the army, secularism and minority policies.
