Since 2007, there seems to be a re-shuffling of economic and political strength between the great powers of the previous period and the challengers, altering the global landscape. One such player aspiring to be one of the new global powers is Turkey. This does not seem a far fetched goal given Turkey’s impressive economic clout, as the 15th largest economy in the world, its military capabilities and its geostrategic position. This paper proposes that even though, China, India, Russia, Brazil are counted upon as the main challengers to international status, Turkey acquired a new position within this group of newly emerging global players. This paper investigates whether Turkey has become one of the key actors in reshaping global dynamics, and if so what kind of an impact it would have on global and regional balances of power.
