Course description:
A series of inter-state as well as intra-state conflicts, have determined the political and military dispositions of the states in the Middle East. Heavy armament of the states in the region, including all categories of weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles, and the emergence of terrorist groups make the prospects for a fair and lasting peace all the more difficult. These developments in its immediate neighborhood which raise serious concerns for Turkey will also be studied.
