Summary Turkey stands at the nexus of four geographic areas of growing strategic importance in the post-Cold War era: the Balkans, the Middle East, the Caucasus/Central Asia, and the Persian Gulf region. In each of these areas, Turkey's cooperation is critical for achieving U.S. policy goals. However, in recent years, especially since 2003, U.S.- Turkish relations have undergone serious strains. Sharp differences over Iraq and the Kurdish issue have been compounded by differences over the Middle East, particularly relations with Iran, Iraq, and Syria. At the same time, Turkey has witnessed a sharp rise in anti-American sentiment. This monograph examines the causes of recent strains in the U.S.-Turkish security partnership and options for reducing these strains.
Funding The research described in this report was sponsored by the United States Air Force under Contract FA7014-06-C-0001.
Contents The U.S.-Turkish security partnership in transition -- Iraq and the Kurdish challenge -- The broader Middle East -- Russia and Eurasia -- The European dimension -- U.S.-Turkish defense cooperation -- The domestic context -- Alternative Turkish futures -- Conclusion: Revitalizing the U.S.-Turkish relationship.
