Turkish foreign policy has, for a variety of reasons, been the center of attention for scholars and analysts over the past several years. Turkey has emerged as a regional powerhouse with enviable economic growth and democratic development, propelling its foreign policy initiatives. In fact, very few countries have received as much attention in recent years as Turkey. The SETA Foundation at Washington D.C has strived to contribute to dialogues on Turkish foreign policy through a variety of innovative programs, such as the Young Scholars on Turkey (YSOT) program. As a component of the YSOT program, SETA organized an international conference on February 5, 2013. This volume draws on articles submitted by scholars who presented their work to the Washington audience therein. The Young Scholars on Turkey (YSOT) program was designed to serve as a bridge between academic research and policy debates on Turkey, and to contribute to discussions, specifically in the Washington DC policy community, by drawing on already accumulated academic knowledge. Early career scholars' new reŽsearch and fresh perspectives have rendered this program unique in many ways. As "young" scholars find it an opportunity as well as a challenge to present their work to the policy community, policy "analysts" find it truly enriching to hear from scholars visiting from around the globe. For us at SETA, it is both a challenging and rewarding experience to bring these two communities together, particularly to discuss Turkish foreign policy. We believe in the value of this endeavor and aim to continue this program in the future. The current volume is organized into two parts. The first part - "Turkish Foreign Policy and US-Turkey Relations" - begins with an introductory chapter titled , "Theorizing the Transformation of Turkish Foreign Policy."
