WORKING PAPER N°5 “Turkey, the Middle East and the EU integration process through the prism of ontological security theory” by Drakoularakos Stavros

WORKING PAPER N°5 “Turkey, the Middle East and the EU integration process through the prism of ontological security theory” by Drakoularakos Stavros

EUMENIA’s fifth working paper entitled “Turkey, the Middle East and the EU integration process through the prism of ontological security theory” by Drakoularakos Stavros is now available!

The working paper is part of the Middle East Series, The Jean Monnet Papers on Political Economy, of the Jean Monnet Center of Excellence of University of Peloponnese.

Εxecutive summary

This paper aims to bridge the gap between the pausing of the Turkish European integration process and the gradual inflection of Ankara’s foreign policy to the Middle Eastern region through the prism of ontological security theory. The objectives are threefold: first, to present and illustrate ontological security theory as applied to state entities; second, to examine the Turkish European integration process through the tenets of the Kemalist foundational identity narrative; and third, to focus on the build-up and identity redefinition in the 2000s and 2010s in order to better comprehend the emphasis shift from the European Union to the Middle East.

The working paper is available here.

Description:

What is the role of art and artists in an extreme case of violence such as in Gaza, and what can we learn from Gazan artists about hope and resilience?

These are the key questions that we explore in this video and the panel that will follow as a continuation of our research on health and violence in Gaza. The form of slow violence in Gaza operated by Israel seems to be forgotten but the people of the Gaza Strip continue to live without free access to the outside world. Years of protracted humanitarian crisis have all but exhausted the resilience of the two million Gazans. In the midst of chaos and despair there remains hope, particularly expressed in Gazan art.
