On what conceptions of international affairs and world order is based the AKP foreign policy at the head of Turkey? This chapter examines the pillars of the AKP’s foreign action and discourse. It shows that the Islamist movement has been trying over the last several years to promote a new identity for Turkey in order to reconcile both national interest and defence of the Muslim people across the Middle East. However, in contrast to the official discourses, some crisis such as the Syrian crisis have been reshaping this panislamic ambition to make it always more realistic.
