Polish PM Donald Tusk in Turkey

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk is visiting Turkey to present Poland's priorities before assuming the EU presidency in July 2011. A Polish news site quotes him before leaving:
Our priorities concentrate on EU expansion. Poland has not change [sic] its ideas [on Turkey’s entry to the EU] and we continue to support the enlargement even at times when the issue is not on the top of [others] agendas.

The Economist's recent special report on Turkey

The Economist had a good recent report on Turkey that you can find here. While much of the report was upbeat about the progress on reforms and on the state of the Turkish economy, the piece on Turkey's EU accession talks was rather pessimistic.

About this blog

Welcome to the TurkEU blog,

This blog is dedicated to disseminating information, commentary, and analysis about Turkey's bid for accession to the European Union. I will try to post regularly both links to articles and other materials on the web on this topic, as well as my own reflections.

The posts will likely betray my own interests in the long history behind current events, as well as items such as the resurgence of Islamophobia and xenophobia in much of Europe that I believe are closely related to the issue of Turkey's EU bid.

Please feel free to leave your comments and thoughts, and enjoy your stay.
