MetadataShow full item record
This paper's aim is to read the process that crowned with the practice of cultural diplomacy thanks to TURKSOY and Turkic Council in Central Asia (especially in between Turkic republics and in general Turkic World) through Karl Deutch's "transactionalist" approach. In his book, "Political Community and the North Atlantic Area" Deutsch explains the transactionalist theory as a study that would enable "possible ways in which men someday might abolish war." So, the question is "How can men learn to act together to eliminate war/conflict as a social institution?". Therefore, also, this article is an attempt to answer this question with cultural diplomacy and cultural diplomacy implementations through international organizations such as TURKSOY and Turkic Council in the Turkic World.
