Abstract:

The basic question is to determine to what extent, if any, the strategic significance of the Turkish Straits has changed since the signing of the Treaty of Montreux in 1936. Additional questions addressed include consideration of possible renegotiation of the Montreux Treaty and the impact of a reopened Suez Canal on military traffic through the Straits.
