This research project focuses over the relationship between Turkey's defence industry policies and foreign policy. It investigates the connections between Turkey's political relations with suppliers and its arms procurement from those states. Rather than analysing overall aspects of Turkish foreign policy in detail, this research highlights Turkey's political relationship with its major suppliers, these being the US, European suppliers, especially France and Germany, and Israel. The project illustrates that Turkey's arms procurement from the US and European defence market is influenced by the deterioration of political relations with those suppliers. However, the same correlation is absent in the case of Turkish-Israeli defence cooperation. The reason for this contradiction is investigated in this study from the perspective of Turkey's defence industry policy-making process and an analysis of who were the major actors and what were their interests in this process. The premises of Bureaucratic Politics Model and the Civil -Military relations theory are applied in this thesis to illustrate Turkey's defence industry policy-making process. IAbstract .'.:-.'
