Seeking Kant Relations in The EU's relations with Turkey
The publication examines the EU's treatment of Turkey in the enlargement process through a Kantian lens. The authors argue that the cases in which the EU has shifted the criteria of Turkish accession constitute blatant discrimination and suggest the failure of the EU to put into practice the principle of equality. The report identifies eight cases in which the EU has negotiated unfairly with Turkey compared to other candidate countries. The report concludes that double standards and the waning attitude of the EU with regard to accession talks endangers the realization of a Europe founded on Kantian principles.
