Global defense industrialization and cooperative behaviors of major powers

Akbay, Özde Aslı
This thesis analyzes global defense industrialization and the cooperative behaviors of major powers in this process. In order to explain the patterns of cooperation in the globalization period, a comparative historical analysis based on a case study approach will be conducted. With this aim, the influence of political, economic, and technological dimensions of global defense industrialization on cooperative behaviors of major actors will be explored following an eclectic approach based on Neorealist, Neoliberal institutionalist, and regionalist theories. In this thesis, it will be argued that the power statuses of major powers influence their cooperative behaviors in the scope of the global defense industrialization process, which, in the twenty-first century, has a more regional characteristic.
