The relative hostility between Greece and Turkey
This study determines the relationship between political protest, military expenditure, arms transfers, and economics on the relative hostility between Greece and Turkey. Military expenditures, a factor of economics, and arms transfers through alliances evoke a violent response from rival nations. The project utilizes events data to explore the interaction of the participants on the basis of internal and external influences. The focus is the determination and confirmation of correlational relationships and a regression model of the relative hostility between Greece and Turkey. A marked correlation exists between the relative hostility of Greece and Turkey and political demonstrations in both countries and riots and deaths from domestic violence in Greece. Sizable financial resources were committed for military aims, impacting the domestic political environments and their interactions. NATO military transfers impact more strongly the relative hostility between Greece and Turkey.
