Panel Discussion with Senem Aydın Düzgit, Josef Janning, Fuat Keyman, Atila Eralp, and Ertuğ Tombuş (Chair).

In the turbulent global and European climate, it is timely to contextualize the debate on Turkey and the long-lasting Turkey-EU relationship in terms of global trends and the present debate on the future of Europe. The aim of this encounter is to focus on the possibility of the revitalization of the EU-Turkey-Germany relationship in changing global, European, and neighbourhood contexts. Germany has always been one of the key drivers of the process of European Integration and the EU-Turkey relationship. By inviting speakers from Turkey and Germany, we would like to contribute to this debate and encounter.

The panel will be in English. There will be a reception afterwards.

The event is co-organized by the Istanbul Policy Center-Sabancı University-Stiftung Mercator Initiative, and the programme "Blickwechsel: Contemporary Turkey Studies", funded by Stiftung Mercator.
