Abstract

The European Union has already become a force in international politics with its ability to bring about significant transformation in countries aspiring for accession, as well as its role in stabilizing the borders of Europe. However, some of the key mechanisms that the EU had at its disposal to act as such a force have their own sell-by dates such as the enlargement process or the limits to their applicability as in the EU’s inability to positively reinforce political change in Turkey. An important test case of the European foreign policy is its relations with Turkey- a particularly difficult case for the EU’s external relations. The diverging member state preferences, the checks and balances over the EU institutions’ role in European foreign policy as well as the challenges that the EU confronts in its external relations, specifically in the Middle East and in Eurasia, add up together to limit the effectiveness of the EU in its international role. This panel aims to put together multiple papers from different IR perspectives in assessing the EU’s role in international politics, specifically with regards to its relations with Turkey. The panel assesses the EU’s effectiveness in its borderlands, its ability to deal with new foreign policy challenges, as well as potential for collaboration with regional players such as Turkey.
