This book makes the case for looking afresh at Turkey-EU relations in order to appreciate the richness and complexity of a relationship which is now more than 50 years old and is still not close to reaching fulfilment. The contributors challenge conventional attempts to understand Turkey-EU relations, revealing that EU integration studies has been rather poor at understanding the global context within which Turkey-EU developments take place. More surprising perhaps, EU integration studies has also struggled to give sufficient weight to the potential of Turkey’s domestic politics to shape EU enlargement. The volume attempts to correct these imbalances by offering both a global context and new perspectives on the drivers of domestic politics. It represents a shift from a narrow EU integration/enlargement agenda. Turkey’s position vis-a-vis the EU cannot be adequately captured by simplistic notions of conditionality, harmonization, and an uncritical interpretation of Europeanization. A more rounded view of Turkey-EU relations is advanced based upon a broader context of European and global transformations. The contributions, collected here, offer an interpretation of Turkey-EU relations from a novel perspective, utilize a new framework of theory, and draw upon insights and perspectives from disciplines underrepresented in mainstream study of Turkey-EU relations. This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of Contemporary European Studies.

Turkey has long been a bridge between East and West, but nowhere is this dual role more apparent than in the complex negotiations surrounding Turkey's desired accession to the European Union. Turkey has recently begun negotiations with the EU on the most stringent, demanding and subjective terms ever faced by any EU candidate. The next decade, in which Turkey will negotiate its accession, will be momentous. The fate of Turkey's bid for membership will be closely watched in Europe, the United States, the broader Middle East, the Muslim world, and Eurasia. While the reforms Turkey will make to adjust to the EU will be largely domestic, foreign and security policy on both sides will help set the tone for the accession period. As Turkey learns to play within the EU mindset and procedures, so must the EU become accustomed to marriage with a geopolitical heavyweight. In this timely and important book, diplomat Burak Akcapar suggests a strategic framework for thinking about the foreign and security policy of Turkey, Europe, and the United States. If Turkey joins the EU, this multiregional actor will help connect various strategic basins and cultures, generate a credible pull factor for benign change in its neighborhood, assist Europe in its aspirations to become a global actor, and fulfill the United States' quest to find a credible transatlantic partner. Everyone who is interested in peaceful relations between East and West should read this book to better understand Turkey's bid for EU membership.

The rapid change in consumer preferences pertaining to tourism brings an increase in demand elasticity together. Besides, the fact that security gradually gains importance in tourism has become an important factor that affects demand. Global terror, which gains impetus with the globalization across the world, has been affecting tourism where the effects of globalization are felt the most. Seasonality of tourism and frequent occurrence of crises led by terror have caused tourism to rank first among sectors with high venture in terms of both business and tourism. Although tourism and terrorism are completely different concepts, they are mentioned together in public opinion in recent years. Economic, political and social chaos that is brought about by the partnership of terrorism and tourism reflects upon not only national but also international context and that extends the activity and run of terrorism while it decreases the activity of tourism.
