This report provides an overview of Turkey’s experience and engagement in mediation processes. Findings suggest that Turkey aspires to become an international player with the potential to influence and achieve positive outcomes. However, this aspiration is not matched by the results of Turkey’s engagement in this field, if adopting established definitions of mediation as an institutionalised process. The Global Transitions Series, published by PeaceRep, looks at fragmentations in the global order and how these impact peace and transition settlements. It explores why and how different third-party actors – state, intergovernmental, and non-governmental – intervene in conflicts, and how they see themselves contributing to reduction of conflict and risks of conflict relapse. The series critically assesses the growth and diversification of global and regional responses to contemporary conflicts. It also asks how local actors are navigating this multiplicity of mediators and peacebuilders and how this is shaping conflict outcomes and post-conflict governance.
