Turkey and European Security. IAI-TESEV Report


This publication represents the outcome of a joint study conducted in the period 2005-2006 by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) and the Turkish Economic and Social Studies Foundation (TESEV). Following the European Union's decision to open membership negotiations with Turkey, the Turkish contribution to European security and defence has became increasingly important, thus requiring further analysis, both at national and European level. Turkey's role in maintaining peace and security in Europe, especially on the south-eastern front and in the Mediterranean area, is, indeed, a very important aspect of the cooperation between Turkey and the European Union. The study underlines the positive aspects of this collaboration, and, at the same time, the problems emerged, aiming at identifying their possible evolution. To this end, two multidisciplinary research teams have analysed the same issues from different perspectives and compared their respective results.
