Turkish Security Challenges and its Relationship with NATO

In order to investigate NATO’s role in Turkey, it is necessary to first provide a brief historical background of Turkey and of how Turkey entered into the North Atlantic alliance. Greek-Turkish relations will then be assessed from a Turkish perspective, with regard to Cyprus and the Aegean. Finally the chapter analyses the relationship of NATO and Turkey and how this partnership has developed during the Cold and the post-Cold War era.
