NATO’s Future – Great Decisions

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has come under increased scrutiny, not because NATO troops are involved in the conflict, but because of its role in relations between Russia and its neighbors. Will expanding membership in NATO protect countries, or will it further provoke Russia?

    I am the College Professor of International Studies (Endowed Chair), Professor of Political Science, and the Director of the Honors Program and the International Studies Minor at Elizabethtown College. My research interests include Turkish foreign policy, transatlantic security, European Union, Eastern Mediterranean, South East Europe, and peace operations. I am the author of two recent books – Turkey–West Relations: The Politics of Intra-alliance Opposition, published by Cambridge University Press in 2019, and The Nexus Between Security Sector Reform/Governance and Sustainable Development Goal-16: An Examination of Conceptual Linkages and Policy Recommendations, published as part of the SSR Papers flagship series of the Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance (DCAF) by Ubiquity Press in 2021. The Turkish translation of my Turkey-West Relations book, Türkiye–Batı İlişkileri: İttifak İçi Muhalefet Siyaseti (2023), is just out by Koç University Press in Turkey. I am also the editor of two books – The European Union as an Actor in Security Sector Reform (Routledge, 2014) and External Interventions in Civil Wars (co-edited with Stefan Wolff, Routledge, 2014) as well as a number of scholarly articles in leading peer-reviewed journals, such as Foreign Policy Analysis, Turkish Politics, Civil Wars, European Security, Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding, French Politics, Perspectives on European Politics and Society, and Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies, among others, and chapters in various edited volumes.
