No. of Pages: 3
Keywords: , , ,
Summary/Abstract: REVIEW: Already for many years Anssi Kullberg and Christian Jokinen have specialized on political Islam and its relationship with the surrounding environment of ideas and cultures. Both of them have extensively studied within the region and have followed the ongoing debates and the progress of the political ideas around the area. They have published the outcome of their research both in journals (especially in the Eurasian Politician, but also, to take Kullberg’s example, in the first two issues of this journal) and in mass-media (for instance, in the Finnish popular newspapers Turun Sanomat), giving a large publicity to their findings. Joining the Finnish Foreign Ministry in 2004, Kullberg was able to further his knowledge of Islam by being accredited in the Middle East, whereas Jokinen acquired an invaluable ground-knowledge as a member of the Finnish peace-keeping force in Afghanistan.

Un Camino Inacabado: Turquia y su Aproximacion a Europa

Summary/Abstract: Ever since the Republic of Turkey was created, the attempts of this country to consolidate as the great power of its zone have been constant. Turkey, because of her geographical position, assumed a significant strategic value. The fall of the Berlin Wall had important consequences upon the international role that Turkey was playing in her area. On one hand, the creation of a series of new Balkan states turned Turkey into the key state to support the stability and the balance in both the Middle East and Europe. Secondly, there emerged a series of the new states from the extinct Soviet Union. For these, many of them of Turkoman origin, Turkey constituted a model to be imitated in the transition towards democracy and, especially, represented a big commercial associate and an economic actor of the first magnitude in their need for communication with the Mediterranean. The opening of the negotiations with the EU, which seemed to have opened Turkey the doors of Europe, crowned all these achievements. Nevertheless, gradually the religion will assume a bigger and bigger role in the Turkish politics and society. The logical culmination of the opening of the negotiations, i.e. the integration of Turkey as an EU member-state, is going to depend more than of Turkey, of the EU capacity to maintain a common policy.
