Comparing Turkey's and EU's Neighbourhood Policies: conditionality versus regional integration
The EU's policies towards its eastern and southern neighbours aim to export its model of democracy and prosperity
in return for closer political ties and greater access to the European market. This conditional approach has had little
effect in the Mediterranean. Turkey however has in recent years become a driving force behind regional economic
and political integration. Kemal Kirişci (Boğaziçi University, Istanbul), Jean Monnet professor and a specialist in the
field of EU-Turkish relations, will draw a comparison between the European and Turkish approach using new data.
Discussant: Mathieu Segers (Utrecht University)
Moderator: Lily Sprangers (Turkey Institute)
This event is the first in a series of three debates with scholars, writers and politicians from new and potential future EU-members. See the Flyer for more information.
