Turkey – European Union (EU) relations are at an all times low. The transformation of the Turkish political regime in the aftermath of the failed coup against President Erdogan puts significant pressure on the vision for a common future. Essentially, Turkey’s EU integration process is stalled. The importance of trade relations, the large Turkish diaspora in EU Member States, the high relevance of Turkey for EU’s response to the migrant crisis all enable the existence of open channels of communication.
The role of the Turkey – European Union relations: Insights for the Future Project is to research the trends described above and to bring more understanding and analysis about the potential for bilateral relations in the given context. To realize that, the Project will rely on policy analysis and international relations, as well as, on interdisciplinary approaches.
