In the fall of 2009, I wrote an article for The Brown Journal of World Affairs entitled ''Paradigm Shift in Turkey's Foreign Policy''. My objective was to explain the fundamental transformation ongoing in foreign policy and connect this to the AKP driven changes in public opinion and sentiment. I also tried to explain the domestic political consolidation efforts of the ruling party. I wanted this article to be a wake-up call to what was happening on the ground in Turkey. What I would like to do now is share my thoughts on more recent developments in Turkey, as well as the upcoming general elections scheduled for June 12th.
