The European Union and Turkey: An Anchor Credibility Dilemma.

It argues that the problematic evolution of EU-Turkey relations is due to an "anchor/credibility dilema" which can be described as the EU's failure to underwrite part of the risks associated with Turkey's convergence towards European standards and Turkey's failure to undertake a credible commitment on policy reform. As a result, Turkey is now economically the most integrated yet politically the most detached associated country.

Relations between Turkey and the EU began on 31 July 1959 when Turkey applied for the membership of the European Economic Community. Since then, the relations between the two, have never been what Turkey desired to be. In the years following the application, the EU has enlarged itself from six to fifteen member states. Another 12 prospective members are also ahead of Turkey on the way to the E. .

Drawing on the theories of integration, credible policy commitments and convergence, this book demonstrates that the problematic evolution of the EU-Turkey relations has been due to an anchor/credibility dilemma: neither Turkey's European orientation was a credible commitment nor was the EU's anchoring capacity resolute enough to make policy reversals in Turkey less likely.

First published in 1999, this volume draws on the theories of integration, credible policy commitments and convergence, this book demonstrates that the problematic evolution of the EU-Turkey relations has been due to an anchor, credibility dilemma: neither Turkey’s European orientation was a credible commitment nor was the EU’s anchoring capacity resolute enough to make policy reversals in Turkey less likely. The way out of this dilemma is to re-write the existing contracts so that non-transparency and the scope for discretion are minimised.
