Turkey, due to its geographical location, surrounded on one side by unstable locations, on the other by the EU, has long given a strong emphasis on hard security, that is, on military power. However it is gradually becoming more sensitive to soft security issues, which it considers a way of conflict prevention, a way to avoid hard security matters. Its geographical location makes it also not only a transit country to migrants seeking access to the EU, but also a destination one, which has led Turks to consider migrations as a soft security issue, given that uncontrolled illegal migration may have serious repercussions for Turkey, be it as a destination country or a transit one. Turkey is now negotiating a number of migration management policies with the EU and with migration source countries.
