FEUTURE project completed on 31 March 2019

The Horizon 2020-project “FEUTURE – The Future of EU-Turkey Relations: mapping dynamics and testing scenarios” has officially come to an end on 31 March 2019.

In April 2016, 15 partners, including universities and think tanks from Turkey, EU Member States and neighbouring countries joined forces under the lead of the University of Cologne and Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) to embark on the biggest ever EU-funded research project on the troubled relationship between the EU and Turkey. In these three years, 32 research papers and one synthesis paper were produced, as well as an upcoming edited volume.

FEUTURE was tasked with mapping the historical dynamics of EU-Turkey relations and assessing the most likely scenario for the development of the relations in the near future, thereby offering an added value for the academic studies and political debate. FEUTURE’s final assessment after three years of research stressed the nature of EU-Turkey relations as a “conflictual cooperation” and proposes for action to pursue a “dynamic association”.
