Applying level of analysis discussion to the relations between Germany and Turkey: 1999-2014

Yavuz, Merve
Relations between Germany and Turkey include many different aspects. Therefore, applying the level of analysis to their relations is very useful to understand them. Three levels of analysis which are derived from Kenneth Waltz’s three images are used for this discussion. These are system level, state level and individual level. System level refers to the power positions of both Germany and Turkey while the state level indicates the domestic features of these two countries that are effective on the relations. Individual level, on the other hand, shows how the leaders of Germany and Turkey are influential on the relations. This study investigates how relations between Germany and Turkey can be studied at all of these levels.
