Perceptions has a new editorial board and with this new issue has changed its design as part of our tireless efforts to bring high-quality analyses to our readers’ attention. The new editorial board consists of prominent academics specializing in Turkish foreign policy and different fields of international relations. In our future issues, the members of the editorial board will take an active part in the restructuring of the journal by soliciting first-rate research papers, preparing special issues, and assisting in the peer-review process. I would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to the former board members for helping put together this journal; we will certainly continue to benefit from their knowledge and experience.
