USA, Turkiet och Kurdistan - En konflikt inom allianser

Abstract
The following essay sets out to explain why the US has chosen to stay neutral in the conflict between its two allies, Turkey and Syrian Kurdistan, indirectly siding with Turkey as opposed to Syrian Kurdistan, given their power-discrepancies. Theories within alliance theory, and primarily Stephen M. Walt, point to reputation, the probability of allied support, level of institutionalization and non-military cooperation as reasons to why the US avoids intervening in the conflict. Beyond this, the fact that the alliance between the US and Syrian Kurdistan was temporary and was created purely in order to defeat ISIS, meaning that their alliance wasn’t made to last anyhow.
