Israel-Turkey relations in a changing geopolitical landscape

Turkey and Israel have maintained diplomatic relations since Ankara recognized the Jewish State in 1949 - the first Muslim-majority state to do so. Over the years the two states developed close multifaceted cooperation in the military, strategic, and diplomatic spheres, only to see these relations deteriorate sharply since 2008.

Marking modern Turkey’s 100th anniversary, the special issue will explore the relations from different perspectives - economic, military, political, cultural, among others - as well as the relations between the Jews of Turkey and Israel and vice versa.

Topics include, but are not limited to

  • Bilateral relations during the Cold War
  • Strategic ties that correspond to various historical events/developments
  • Cultural Diplomacy as a bridging method.
  • Israel’s image in film, photography, and other media in Turkey and vice versa.
  • Anti-Zionism and Antisemitism.
  • The 1990s “honeymoon”
  • The impact of the AKP/ Erdoğan’s ascendancy.
  • Tourism and trade.
  • The future of Israeli-Turkish relations.
  • Ankara and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
  • Israel and the Kurds.
  • Israel and Turkey in the broad Middle East region.
