This article investigates the applicability of the Turkish model in Arab countries after the Arab Revolutions. After two years from the beginning of the Arab Revolutions, the issue of the substitution model in the Arab countries has come under the spotlight. Today, many analysts provide models through the prescriptive approach, many clearly state that countries that have experienced the Islamic movement should use the Turkish model. The author believes that compared to Western liberal model and Salafi model, the Turkish model will have a better chance because of having components like the adaptation of Islam to democracy, successful liberal economic foundation - together with an independent commercial society, facilitating Turkey’s influence in the region - and strengthening relations with the West. The research methodology used by the author is analytical and relies on posterior analytics, using surveys conducted by some research institutes. In the end, the author concludes that although warmly received by some Arab countries, the Turkish model has its own problems and obstacles. If this model is used, its problems and obstacles will emerge in the implementation phase.
