The coronavirus pandemic, which first emerged in China in late 2019, spread in a very short period of time and quickly reshuffled the domestic and foreign policy priorities of many countries. Thus far, around 2.3 million people have died from Covid-19.
As a result of the pandemic, one country which has fundamentally changed its foreign policy has been Turkey. Turkey’s corona-diplomacy can be seen as a very smart use of soft power.
In the first anniversary of the pandemic in Turkey, a new academic book meets with the readers!
The book titled “Covid-19 ve Küresel Siyaset” (Covid-19 and Global Politics) edited by Dr. Çağlar Ezikoğlu, reveals a wide range of interdisciplinary studies from domestic and foreign policy-oriented country analyzes to international security problems including terrorism and conflict analysis. This book also adresses political history studies and women studies, local governments and environmental policies.
In this book I have a chapter titled “The Covid-19 Factor in Turkish Foreign Policy in the Context of Soft Power and Humanitarian Diplomacy”
