EU-Turkey Relations Following the European Council: Can A Positive Agenda Work?

EU-Turkey relations are at a cross­roads between sanctions, de-escalation and a positive agenda. What are possible scenarios after the 25–26 March European Council? How united are the member states and how sincere is Turkey’s reiterated commitment to the EU? Which role does Turkey play in German foreign policy and what reper­cus­sions does it have on Germany’s domestic situation? How does Greece evaluate the conclu­sions of the European Council and the role of the European Union in the resolution of Greek-Turkish disputes?
