This study will compare the defense procurement processes of Turkey and Thailand in terms of transparency and explore the risk of corruption throughout the defense procurement cycle. To analyze the defense procurement process of both countries, the researchers will investigate and evaluate the vulnerabilities of the processes by considering the main characteristics of each procurement process and the differences between both countries. The report will include some examples from defense procurement of the United States for improving and solving the problem in transparency. Finally, recommendations will be given for Turkish and Thai military to improve their transparency in the defense procurement process.
