This thesis analyzes the impact of globalization processes on the understanding and implementation of National Security in modern states. It is understood that modern states are in a process of transformation that conventional approaches have difficulty in explaining. Parallel to this way of thinking, in this thesis it will be attempted to show that the understanding and implementation of National Security as a basic characteristic of modern states is transforming. The case of the Turkish modern state is analyzed to reveal the extent and scope of the impact of globalization on the understanding and implementation of National Security. In the conclusion it is stated that the Turkish State is defining certain developments caused by globalization as threats to its national security and that the Turkish State is re-structuring itself to cope with them.
