Is the African Sahel the Last Base for France?

The ongoing political struggle in the African Sahel pushed France to withdraw its military special forces from Central Africa, Burkina Faso, Mali, and lately in Niger, a geopolitical setback for Paris. Following the military coup against ousted President Mohammed Bazoum last summer is the consequence of recent Paris’s failed African Sahel strategy and West Africa foreign policy at large.
Russia backed separatists fighting against the Ukrainian army in the war that started in 2014 and annexed Crimea from Ukraine. On 24 February 2022, Russia escalated this war and invaded Ukraine. This was the most devastating attack on a European country since World War II. Türkiye as a neighbouring country has made the “most intense efforts“ to end the war through talks “based on international law.“ Türkiye’s not anti-Russian but pro-Ukrainian stance allowed her to maintain a delicate balance.

China and Türkiye's Experience in “Education Security”

Although there is no clear definition of education security, China and Türkiye have explored this issue in the process of educational modernization consciously or unconsciously.

The World is changing, under the pressing resurgence of strategic hypercompetition and growing geopolitical crisis. New threats are constantly emerging and old ones are resolutely coming back from the past, driven by new technological integration.

Türkiye's initiative called "Asia Anew," declared in 2019 to re-establish stronger ties with the Asian continent, which has ancient connections and has become the economic and geopolitical center of the world in the 21st century by hosting rising global powers, is a reflection of an entrepreneurial foreign policy concept that necessitates innovation.

8th TGF Vision Document Red Apple for Security Partnership

Despite a strong historical and cultural background, the relations between Türkiye and the Middle East, or more narrowly, Türkiye and the Gulf Countries, where strategic dialogue is still evolving, need to transform from a fragile axis into a cooperation axis that adapts to new balances, roles, and alliances. When viewed with vision and sagacity, this has been tested in various crises that the spirit of history and time has reminded us of for a long time.
Concerns should be taken into account about how comprehensive international military strategies contribute to regional security crises on the continent of Africa. There are views suggesting that Africa's inability to properly strengthen its military capacity due to existing problems in both the industry in general and the defense industry in particular creates a ground for overly interventionist and neo-colonial tendencies.
With the rapid advancement of technology and the widespread adoption of digital transformation processes, the importance and complexity of cyberspace are increasing. In this new technopolitical cyberspace, Turkey's role and strategic position are becoming increasingly prominent. Turkey is developing itself in areas such as artificial intelligence, deepfakes, and cybersecurity and using these technologies in line with its strategic interests.

Humanity lives on rising or falling land masses (lithosphere) in the middle of the water sphere that makes up 72% of the Earth's surface, shaped by various terrestrial dynamics. The land masses forming the natural habitat of humanity constitute only a small part of the Earth's surface. The fundamental commonality of all these land masses is that they each have the nature of an "island." The size of islands varies. Some islands are continental, hosting multiple states and nations.

In his interview to Tucker Carlson, Vladimir Putin talked a lot about “historical rights“ of Russia to control what he perceives as a buffer zone between Russia and the West. But what is simply a territory for Moscow, is a social and political reality for the states who exist there and have their own view of their relations with the former hegemon.

New Wars and Ontological Security

I would like to specify that I am glad and honored to address you once again as a key speaker at the Istanbul Security Conference, which has made significant progress towards becoming a brand. The ninth Istanbul Security Conference is being held under the shadow of the Hamas -Israel conflict, in addition to the ongoing Ukraine-Russia War, and in a sad environment caused by Israel's lawless massacre.

Cyber Industry and Data Protection Forces

I want to emphasize how crucial security is for a country. Kobil has over 100 million users and collaborates with companies worldwide. Achieving such success as Turkey is also a source of pride. We hope to see more of such companies globally because I believe it is necessary.
Although after the war ends, Ukraine will most certainly keep its status of an independent state, the final quality of its statehood and nationhood is undefined. Russia’s ongoing destruction of Ukraine has already changed its demographic, economic and social structure with the most severe long-term consequences.
