ABSTRACT
When the small army of journalists, politicians, diplomats and workers had finally packed up lime's NATO summit in Istanbul — and local residents breathed a sigh of relief- many were left wondering what the conference had demonstrated about the future of the organization — and what this meant for the region. Meanwhile, despite what organisers saw as a successful summit, for most ordinary Turks, the presence of the alliance's leaders — U.S. President George W. Bush in particular — was most unwelcome, demonstrating the long-standing dissonance between popular feeling in the country and official policy, which the popular Justice and Development Party government has been trying to manage, rather than overcome.
