The anthology deconstructs the political discourse on EU-Turkey relations. It identifies the main perceptions and narratives of EU-Turkey-Germany relations in the countries, and at the EU level in Brussels.

In order to provide a sound assessment of EU-Turkey relations and their future prospects, this volume focuses on the triangular relationship between the bloc and Turkey on the one hand and the bilateral relations between Germany and Turkey on the other. Based on historical institutionalism, it starts from the assumption that a fundamental restructuring of EU-Turkey relations requires "critical turning points" that entail a "paradigm shift".

The analytical contributions aim to answer the general questions of whether and at what point a paradigm shift can be identified; if so, what are the driving factors of such a shift; and whether the narratives of EU-Turkey relations change over time.
