Abstract (2. Language): 
In this essay, ‘‘regional modeling’’ that has been increasingly applied as an hegemonic policy almost for the last twenty years is examined with a view to clarify the locus of that policy in international relation theory. Some states at regional level are exemplified through modeling based on free market principles, democratic norms and civil society; so that it is targeted that form of statehood of all states at global scale is singularized. Taking into account the reality that current international system is unipolar in which U.S. is the hegemonic power; to connect the initiation of transforming states in developing and underdeveloped regions in line with the models proposed, with the main theoretical approaches in international relations might contribute to a certain extent to understanding current world politics.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu çalışmada, yaklaşık son yirmi yıldır yaygınlaşan biçimde başvurulan bir hegemonya politikası olan ‘‘bölgesel modelleme’’nin uluslararası ilişkiler kuramında nasıl bir yerinin olduğu incelenecektir. Serbest piyasa ilkeleri, demokratik normlar ve sivil toplum kriterleri çerçevesinde yapılan modelleme ile bölgesel düzeydeki bir kısım devletler pozitif veya negatif olarak örneklenmekte; böylelikle küresel ölçekte bütün devletlerin devlet oluş biçimlerinin tekilleştirilmesi hedeflenmektedir. Halihazırdaki uluslararası sistemin tek kutuplu olduğu ve ABD’nin bu sistem içinde hegemon vaziyette bulunduğu gerçekleri dikkate alındığında; dünyanın gelişmekte ve gelişmemiş bölgelerindeki devletlerin öne sürülen modeller doğrultusunda dönüştürülmesi girişiminin belli başlı kuramsal yaklaşımlarla ilişkilendirilmesi, bugünün dünya politikasının anlaşılmasına belirli ölçüde katkı yapabilecektir.
