Turkey and the EU: Towards Free Movement and Free Thought?; From the Desk of the Editor, Spring 2012
This issue of TPQ finds the Turkey-European Union relationship at a crossroads. While there is widespread recognition that some form of progress is necessary to salvage the current low in relations between the two entities, different perspectives exist on how to go about it. Some see Turkey’s eventual EU membership as inevitable, but dwell on how and when this will take place, others debate alternative forms of mutually beneficial integration. As always, from every perspective and especially on controversial questions, we try to present a wide range of views from influential players in the field.
