Globalization and government support in Turkey (2017_2_40_004)


Turkey shifted its development strategy during the 1980s from import substitution industrialization under the state-led economy to export-led industrialization under the market economy. The latter strategy was most accelerated by the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government that came to power in 2002. How does economic globalization affect political support for the AKP government and its policy making? The current research reveals: (1) the impact of public preferences for globalization on government support, and (2) the role of the globalist business associations in determining foreign policy.
