Talking Turkey in Europe: Towards a Differentiated Communication Strategy

There is no EU-wide debate on EU-Turkey relations, but rather a set of overlapping yet distinct European debates reflecting the different actors, interests and ideas across the European mosaic. Talking Turkey II unpacks this complex reality by analysing the positions of national stakeholders across the EU, the reactions of Turkish stakeholders to these EU debates, as well as the influence of the US in shaping European debates on Turkey. The underlying aim of this research is to develop an EU Communication Strategy for Turkey. Based upon the findings of this project, a Communication Strategy ought to be differentiated and dynamic. It must also engage in a genuine two-way communication with its interlocutors. It is only by Talking Turkey and making such talk a two-way street that Turkey's European course may be strengthened in the long-term.
