ISA Annual Convention: San Diego, 22-25 March 2006
Since 11 September 2001 political Islam has become the topic of much academic
debate as to what its implications are for the world, Muslim societies and the Middle
East in particular. What is lacking in much of the analysis of political Islam is its
historical location in the states it has become prevalent in and the distinction between
different political Islams. This paper will historically locate the Islamist movement in
Turkey and examine the impact of political Islam on Turkish foreign policy under the
Premiership of Necmettin Erbakan from 1996-1997 as leader of the Islamist Refah
(Welfare) Party. This paper conceptualises political Islam as a modern socio-political
movement and examines the dialectical relationship between domestic ideologies in
Turkey and the implications this has for Turkey’s foreign policy.
