Small wonder, that Washington breathed a massive sigh of relief when Erbakan resigned and his government was replaced by a secular coalition. Washington well aware that anger with and alienation from the West, due among other things to the EU’s incessant criticisms of Turkey and the American Congress’s embargo on the sale of weapons to Ankara, had fed the same radical religious sentiments in Turkey that had eventually brought the Welfare Party to power.

While the Middle East region has proven more resistant than others have to the neo-liberal rules of the international economy, even its incremental integration into this order threatens to undermine the very foundations of current states. Regimes that have built their legitimacy on a distributive social contract are being pushed toward a policy of trickle-down capitalism. At least

Moreover, para. 20 indicates that NATO security remains subject to a wide variety of both military as well as non-military risks, which are multidirectional in nature and often difficult to predict. Such risks include uncertainty and instability in an around the Euro-Atlantic area, and the possibility of regional crises at its periphery, which could, para. 20 stresses, evolve

All these analyses tackle choreographic works that have sought to elaborate and problematise issues discussed in words; very often, this is stated in the title of the piece. Kolb also states that the analyses in the book focus on twentieth-​and early twenty-​first-​century Western stage dance (though she does leave some space for developments beyond it

Beyond political community Here is another way of putting it: citizens may not have that much interest in collective self-governance in states.

the broad contemporary Western concerns about the fate of humankind in the midst of economic polarisation and insecurity, global terrorism, the rise of right-​ wing nationalism, fast technological development, artificial intelligence, the mass extinction of species, climate change, and the Anthropocene (Haraway, 2016).
