Relations of Turkey with the EU: Candidate for ever?
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 12:00 to 14:00
Brown-Bag Seminar* with Prof. Bahri Yilmaz – Jean Monnet Professor in Economics of European Integration
The talk will primarily addresses three aspects of Turkish-EU relations: the first section of the study gives an overview of the history of Turkey's relations with and the EEC/EC/ EU in the period between 1959 and 2013. The second section will elaborate on the difficulties and serious disputes that have arisen between Turkey and the EU, and particularly on the current discussion of Turkey's membership. Finally, in light of the remarkable political and economic changes taking place in the international and the European arena, I will draw some lessons from the past in order to make some predictions about the path Turkish-EU relations may follow in the future.
