Abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to examine relations of Turkey and Iran under the perspective of their cultural biases and security prerequisities. It is important to evaluate both countries and their foreign policies, which face many challenges after the post cold war era, in understanding possible futures of both countries. This thesis provides historical background of their relations and major current issues between the two countries. An analysis of factors shaping the decision-making process in Turkey and Iran gives the reader tools to speculate about their future relations. Several possible scenerios of conflict and then- probable outcomes examined. General results of this thesis reveal the necessity of cooperation between the two countries Mutual understanding and cooperation will also have an impact on the stability and development of the region. The Economic Cooperation Organization may provide a mechanism for the two countries to improve their relations and increase regional stability.
