Turkish Neo-Ottoman mind

Turkish Neo-Ottoman Mind” by Darko Tanasković explores the resurgence of neo-Ottomanism in Turkish foreign policy under the leadership of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. This concept refers to a strategic shift in Turkey aiming to regain influential status reminiscent of the Ottoman Empire, particularly in the Middle East and Balkans.

Tanasković, a Serbian diplomat and orientalist, critically analyzes this ideological shift, arguing that it is not only about cultural revival but also involves assertive diplomatic and military maneuvers aimed at establishing Turkey as a dominant regional power. The book delves into the complexities of these policies and their implications for regional stability and international relations. The analysis is particularly relevant given the backdrop of Turkey’s historical and cultural legacy in the regions it seeks to influence.

Diplomacy in the fight against Terrorism

The effectiveness of the role of diplomacy is reflected in the creation of a range of international multilateral conventions that regulate certain aspects of international terrorism. It is also seen in the adoption of a large number of resolutions, recommendations, communiqués, and decisions by the United Nations on international terrorism, as well as on specific cases of international terrorism. 

This phase of diplomacy’s role in combating international terrorism and terrorism in general continues, with varying degrees of success in contemporary international relations, which are affected by many political divisions and conflict situations, especially the very current global phenomenon of terrorism and the global problem of terrorism. In such a global political situation, it is very difficult to predict successful outcomes, not only of the contemporary role of diplomacy in combating international terrorism but also in the peaceful resolution of existing wars, armed conflicts, disputes, interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states, and achieving general peace.

Honorary consuls

The book, which not only greatly contributes to a better understanding of the concept of the institution of the honorary consul, but with a historical overview, a comparative legal method and a deeper legal and factual analysis of the position, functions, competences and powers of career and honorary consuls, gives a clear and comprehensive picture of both mentioned institutes, which are undoubtedly inextricably linked and it is impossible to consider them separately. Given the fact that the literature related to this topic is very modest or practically non-existent (in this “format”), this book represents a significant contribution to both academic and professional literature, and we can confidently state that it will serve as a quality and useful guide for anyone who is, or will be, involved in this field for any reason.
