In the turbulent global and European climate as well as the current conflict in Syria, it is timely to contextualize the debate on Turkey and the long-lasting Turkey-EU relationship in terms of global trends including the Transatlantic relationship and the present debate on the future of Europe. The debate aims to focus on the possibility of the revitalization of the EU-Turkey relationship in changing global, European, and neighborhood contexts.
