Talking Europe

The EU and Turkey: Who needs whom more?

Today, Turkey is seen as the solution to the European Union's refugee crisis. How much is the EU willing to give Turkey and what will Ankara demand? The country is gearing up for parliamentary polls on November 1st. A vote in which the ruling Justice and Development or AK party hopes to regain its absolute majority, something it had enjoyed for 13 years but lost last June. The climate is tense with growing concerns for the treatment of the Kurdish population and press freedom.
