Abstract : This research provides a study about the changing interaction of a Treaty organization with one of its members. It describes how a member (Turkey) of the organization (NATO) rethinks its relationship with the security alliance so as to adapt to its new environment and make the necessary adjustments in its strategy. It discusses a current issue in the context of strategic management. In order to make the appropriate adjustments, past and present threats, opportunities, advantages and disadvantages are identified. The principles of strategy formulation (internal and external assessments) and evaluation (consistency, consonance, advantage, feasibility) are utilized in this analysis. Finally, the future prospects for Turkey's security policy and NATO are discussed. Security policy, Turkey, NATO.
