Turkey’s Antarctic quest: historical legacies, geopolitical ambitions

journal contribution
posted on 07.07.2021, 11:05 by Ali BilgicAli Bilgic
In the last five years, Turkey has become active in Antarctica, although these efforts have been overlooked in political and academic debates on Turkish foreign policy. Ali Bilgic explains the underlying reasons for Turkey’s accelerated efforts in Antarctica as part of Turkey’s status-seeking foreign policy with a global geopolitical scope. He argues that while Ankara clearly wants to build influence around the world, including Antarctica, it is unlikely that Turkey is seeking significant changes in the Antarctic geopolitical balance. Nevertheless, the patterns in Turkish status-seeking behaviour suggest that ignoring or rejecting Turkey’s status-seeking in Antarctica by the ATS parties might prompt a change in the Turkish strategy.
