Publication Date: March 2021 ISBN: 978 1 78811 367 0 Extent: c 208 pp
The book analyses EU foreign policy with Turkey over the last decade by uncovering how its internal functioning and structural context affect the European Union’s decisions. Acknowledging that EU enlargement policy is part of a broader foreign policy framework, which includes also other domains (energy, migration and CFSP), Elena Baracani adopts a unique approach, combining more actor-oriented factors with structural factors to analyse EU–Turkey Relations at national, multinational and international levels.

This insightful book analyses EU foreign policy vis-à-vis Turkey over the last institutional cycle, uncovering how its internal functioning and structural context affects the decisions made by the EU, in both day-to-day and crisis situations. It reconstructs and interprets EU–Turkey relations since 2014, arguing that Turkey has, overall, become a key strategic partner to the EU.

Acknowledging that EU enlargement policy is part of a broader foreign policy framework, which also includes other domains such as the external dimension of migration and CFSP, Elena Baracani adopts a unique approach, combining more actor-oriented factors with structural factors to analyse EU–Turkey relations. Special features include the use of first-hand empirical material, an introduction to the concept of different shades of EU foreign policy, and a new, comprehensive evaluation of EU foreign policy actorness.

Original and perceptive, EU–Turkey Relations will be of special interest to scholars and students in the field of EU studies and foreign policy, who are looking to further their understanding of the foreign policy contributions of different institutions and bureaucratic actors.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book provides a very useful, fine-grained analysis of the EU’s policy vis-à-vis Turkey. The latter does not get reduced to a couple of variables, but is analysed in its complexity, driven by various institutional actors and influenced by a multi-level structural context. Based on different theoretical perspectives and extended original empirical research, this book contributes to a better understanding of EU-Turkey relations and why they have been so challenging over the last years.’
– Tom Casier, University of Kent, UK

‘This is an important contribution to the EU foreign policy making process with a focus on the interplay of different layers of decision-making and the key actors involved. It should appeal to a broad audience and especially to those who would like to learn more about the European perspectives on the complex and important relationship involving Turkey and the EU.’
– Ziya Öniş, Koç University, Turkey
