Turkey’s rejuvenated foreign policy activism firmly constructed on novel conceptual parameters, such as “strategic depth,” “zero problems with neighbours,” “maximum cooperation” and “balance between security and freedom”, attracted ever-increasing academic and popular attention over the course of the last decade. By now, a substantial reservoir of literature has emerged, assessing the profound transformation of Turkish foreign policy from different angles under the leadership of Ahmet Davutoğlu, Turkey’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Depending on their respective ideational/ideological standing, various experts dubbed the proactive, multidimensional and order-creating tendencies of the new foreign policy attitude as a sign of “Turkey’s rising star” as a regional and even global power; or an indication of carefully camouflaged “neo-Ottomanism” associated with an “axis shift” towards the Muslim world.
