Policy Note / Nilgün Arısan Eralp, Senem Aydın Düzgit, Atila Eralp, E. Fuat Keyman, Çiğdem Nas 24/03/2021 -   The tension in Turkey-EU relations subsided towards the end of 2020 with the Turkish government’s positive messages of engagement with the EU and its signals towards moderation on the Eastern Mediterranean agenda. This led the last summit of the EU leaders on 9-10 December 2020 to decide for an extension of the specific sanctions list which was adopted a year before, rather than adopt for more comprehensive sanctions towards Turkey. In the same summit, the High Representative Joseph Borrell and the Commission were given the task to prepare a report on instruments and options regarding how to proceed after an analysis of different aspects of the current relations.  This report which will be submitted at [More]

Turkey-U.S. Relations in the Changing Transatlantic Context

Policy Note / Nilgün Arısan Eralp, Senem Aydın Düzgit, Atila Eralp, E. Fuat Keyman, Çiğdem Nas 04/02/2021 -   As Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States, the country entered a new era of restoration both at home and abroad. U.S. foreign policy is not immune to this period of change. America’s re-joining of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Paris Climate Accord immediately after Biden’s inauguration as well as the reactions of top officials in the Biden administration to Alexei Navalny’s arrest in Russia are early testaments to the emerging characteristics of the new U.S. foreign policy under Biden. We argue in this paper that these characteristics will have a defining impact on the shape and nature of transatlantic relations as well as on U.S. relations with Turkey. U.S. Foreign Policy under the Biden Administrati [More]
