Insights into Turkish Domestic and International Politics

March 2011

Key points:

  • In the Ergenekon case, arrests by the government on vague charges reappear, this time targeting journalists and authors. Recently two journalists were detained based on secret evidence that security officials say cannot be revealed at this time.
  • Ankara continues to practice "Strategic Depth" foreign policy but has largely been left behind in the Western intervention in Libya. As Syria is rocked by protests and consequent crackdowns, Turkey is largely silent, preaching stability as the top priority for the region.
  • Turkey rebuffs Russian demands on a South Stream guarantee while the EU's head of Energy, Günther Oettinger, warns Russia against intimidating Central Asian suppliers of Nabucco.
