Cutting the Gordian Knot of EU-Turkey Relations – Perspectives from different conceptual angles

Dr. Funda Tekin, Director Institut für Europäische Politik

Relations between the European Union and Turkey have become increasingly conflictual over the past years and almost witnessed a melt-down at the end of 2020. Currently, the EU is prepared to engage with Turkey in a phased, proportionate and reversible manner and is ready to turn to or even increase restrictive measure should Turkey return to its assertive foreign policy. On the one hand, the EU and Turkey are bound by the hip through the accession procedure – even though this is currently existing only on paper – as well as the multifaceted nature of their relationship. On the other hand, Turkey is an accession country, a key partner and a strategic partner that has increasingly turned away from the EU. If there is cooperation potential, it is ‘conflictual cooperation’ at best.

In order to assess how the two sides can engage with one another in the future we first need to understand what drives EU-Turkey relations. A brief review of drivers in six thematic dimensions (politics, economic, security, energy, migration and identity) provide information on the delicate state of conflictual cooperation. A mapping of the variable geometries of EU-Turkey relations as the second conceptual angle will help us understand the different institutional theaters of engagement, i.e. the accession process, functional cooperation, and cooperation in international organizations. Finally, a historical institutionalist perspective might help us identifying possible critical junctures that can set EU-Turkey relations back on track.
