Turkey-Africa Relations

The March 2012 issue of the Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies published a study titled "A New Actor or Passer-By? The Political Economy of Turkey's Engagement with Africa" by Mehmet Ozkan, a lecturer in international relations at the International University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

Ozkan concluded that Turkey's opening to Africa is driven by two factors: Turkey's need to diversify its economic relations in a new global economy and its reorientation in global politics.  Turkey-Africa relations remain fragile and their future depends much on Turkey's domestic political developments and interest by Africans.
