Turkey is an economically and strategically significant country that is located in Eurasia
and Western Asia. It has a unique synthesis of Western and Islamic culture and
civilization. It focused on relations with the West and the European Union since 1924.
However, under the government of Erdogan, its foreign policy is being shifted to the
Muslim world and to purse a balanced approach to growing multilateralism. The paper
is focused to exploring the growing changes in political, economic, social and diplomatic
aspects of Turkish foreign policy. Turkey’s growing energy demands, expanding
economic linkages and changing patterns in relations with regional and global
countries and institutions are some prominent factors that depict a new form and
picture of Turkey. This paper aims to discuss the underlying causes of political,
economic, social and diplomatic change in Turkey as well as the country’s policies on
various fronts. The ongoing transformation in Turkey and its impacts on regional and
global levels have been analyzed. The descriptive-analytical method has been used to
describe the policies and events and to analyze these with arguments.
