Resumen

Este artículo analiza longitudinalmente la interacción estratégica entre Turquía y el Partido de los Trabajadores del Kurdistán (PKK) en sus cuatro décadas de conflicto. Utilizando la teoría estratégica contemporánea como marco analítico, analiza cómo se alinean las estrategias –generales y militares– y los objetivos políticos de las partes. Constata que ambas partes han tenido dificultades estableciendo (alineando la política, la estrategia y los recursos) y, en varios casos, sosteniendo un Strategy Bridge (estrategia) funcional. Ambos actores han sido plagados por aproximaciones estáticas que solo funcionan en un contexto específico y la ausencia de un strategy bridge estratégico, perpetuando así el conflicto en curso. Los autores concluyen que el conflicto seguramente continuará a menos que una de las partes logre crear y sostener una estrategia funcional durante un periodo prolongado.
