We invite you to read the texts of Konrad Zasztowt from the University of Warsaw and Günther Seufert from the think-tank of Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP), as well as Adam Balcer, EuropeWise Foreign Policy Project Manager’s introduction.
From the German perspective, the key issue in relations with Turkey is the question of democratic standards in Turkey itself and Turkish citizens living in Germany. Turkey is also a significant player in security policy and a decisive link in solving the migration crisis. In Warsaw's optics, the most important issue remains the attitude of Turkey and Russia and its impact on relations with Ukraine. It is worth taking a closer look at the areas of common and different interests towards Turkey, for better cooperation in shaping a coherent EU policy towards this problematic and at the same time important for many reasons neighbor.
