Presented in partnership with the American-Turkish Friendship Council.

In the fall of 2004, the European Commission recommended that Turkey begin negotiations to join the most exclusive of clubs, the European Union. Almost a decade and a half later, democratic norms and institutions are greatly weakened and the prospects for EU membership have dimmed.  How did this happen? What are the prospects for a reversal of Turkey’s authoritarian trajectory? What does Turkey’s authoritarian turn mean for its relations with the United States and Europe?
