The article is exactly the product of an effort to understand and systematize the dynamics of change in Turkey’s internal dynamics. In this way, he believes that a basis will be formed for a more accurate understanding of the changes in Turkey’s foreign policy. This article will try to establish this ground only and will concentrate entirely on its effects on the domestic economy-political plane. Therefore, the question of how the changes in the domestic economy-political plane affect foreign policy will not find an answer and examples in this article. The purpose of not discussing the connection points with foreign policy in this article is to reveal the dynamics in the domestic economy-political plane in a comprehensive and holistic understanding. Discussing it in relation to foreign policy has been taken out of the scope of the article, as it may constantly shift the focus of the article and make it difficult to understand and explain the systematics presented. However, the answer to the question of how foreign policy is affected will be discussed in another study.
