Failed state discourse as an instrument of the US foreign policy in the post cold war era
Gülseven, Yahya; Yalman, Osman Galip; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2005)

Problematic story of negative freedom from Hobbes to Berlin and its connotations forTurkish Polity
Tütüncü, Koray; Deveci, Cem; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2007)
In his defense of negative freedom, Isaiah Berlin’s main target is the political voluntarism of enlightenment rationalism which has paved way to totalitarian and authoritarian political regimes of the 20th century which brought the sacrifice of individual freedom.
