EU–Turkey Relations

A New Direction for EU Foreign Policy?

Elena Baracani

The book analyses EU foreign policy with Turkey over the last decade by uncovering how its internal functioning and structural context affect the European Union’s decisions. Acknowledging that EU enlargement policy is part of a broader foreign policy framework, which includes also other domains (energy, migration and CFSP), Elena Baracani adopts a unique approach, combining more actor-oriented factors with structural factors to analyse EU–Turkey Relations at national, multinational and international levels.

Chapter 4: The European Council: prioritizing and reaching convergence on EU foreign policy towards Turkey

Elena Baracani


In the last few years, because of the different crises the EU had to face, the authority of the European Council has been challenged by the emergence of the German hegemony and since the 2014 European elections by the attempt of the Parliament to de facto transform the Union into a Commission-European Parliament centred Federation. This chapter analyses the contribution of the European Council and of the Council to EU foreign policy towards Turkey in the period 2014-19, before and after the attempted coup in Turkey, through the analysis of the conclusions of the European Council, the positions of the MSs, the statements and declarations of the President of the European Council, the conclusions of the relevant Council of ministers and the activity of the HR/VP and the EEAS.
