FEUTURE - The Future of EU-Turkey Relations: Mapping Dynamics and Testing Scenarios

FEUTURE provided excellence and pursued an ambitious, inspiring and innovative programme in a three-phased structure of elaboration, exploration and extrapolation. It applied an inter-temporal, interdisciplinary and international approach by analysing drivers within six thematic dimensions (politics, security, economics, energy, migration, identity) and across four levels of analysis (EU, Turkey, neighbourhood, global).
