A Bridge Too Far. Turkey in the European Union

Philip Claeys and Koen Dillen explain why Turkey cannot join the European Union. The consequences of a possible accession would be incalculable. If Turkey would be allowed in, the biggest member state of the EU would not even be a European country. Turkey is part of the Islamic civilization, and is certainly not a European-style democracy. Socially and economically, Turkey cannot be integrated in Europe; a possible Turkish accession would mean a drain on resources. Moreover, every Turk would be allowed to settle anywhere in the European Union, which would inevitably lead to a new massive immigration flow. Politicians of the traditional parties are trying to shun the debate. They want to present the entry of Turkey as a fait accompli. The opinion of the voters is expressly not asked for. Turkey doesn’t belong in the European Union, which doesn’t mean it shouldn’t remain a friend. Claeys and Dillen therefore advocate a realistic alternative: a privileged partnership.
