Concerns about the inequalities between the center and the periphery within the development of International Relations Discipline (IR) have brought doubts about whether or not the theoretical concepts of International Relations could be developed by contributions from national differences. In addition, studies with a thorough prospect about how the IR theorization has developed in a periphery country or in a region and researching about the factors which have prevented the development of original theoretical paradigms have yet to exist. Taking the road with Turkey's experience, this article foresees the original theorization in IR as the only way for the periphery to be acknowledged respectably by the center.
