About this book

This book examines Turkey’s success within international development cooperation and how this could create a framework for a new international aid architecture. Turkey has become a world leader in humanitarian assistance and shared an extraordinary burden in official development assistance (ODA). Its achievements are used to highlight the global failure to meet aid commitments and the increasingly permanent humanitarian problems seen in certain regions. A particular focus is given to Turkey’s diplomatic and humanitarian actions, its contribution to regional stability and development, and creating a holistic aid perspective.

The book aims to provide the reader with an understanding of Turkey’s significant value-added contribution to the international aid architecture, gives an outline for international cooperation, and contributes to ongoing discussions within development economics, political science, and international relations.

Reviews

“As a practitioner of development policy, I have witnessed firsthand the transformational impact of Turkey’s humanitarian centered development policy which has delivered more sustainable partnerships than traditional development assistance approaches which have failed to support developing countries launch their trajectory towards sustainable development. I strongly recommend this book to students and practitioners of international development policy. It is a timely contribution to an urgent need for a major paradigm shift in development policy and practice.” 
 —Joshua Setipa, Managing Director for the UN Technology Bank for Least Developed Countries
“This book is a precious tool to know and to understand Turkish development  cooperation. At the same time, it offers several critical reflections on how to  improve the effectiveness of international cooperation as such, something very  needed to deal with the immense challenges created by COVID-19. Turkey is much  more than an ‘emerging donor’. This book makes my conviction of the importance  of the EU-Turkey cooperation even stronger.”—Stefano Manservisi, Former EU Director-General of International  Cooperation and Development 

“This book by Professor Karahan highlights the importance of global cooperation,  guided by a vision of solidarity and generosity. The experiences of Turkey  documented in this volume represent a model on how a country can commit  experiences and resources to build a better world, in the spirit of South-South  collaboration.”

—Jorge Chediek, Director of the UN Office for South-South Cooperation  (UNOSSC)
