Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Tracing the economic transformation of Turkey from the 1920s to EU accession contains illustrations and acknowledgments. The book examines the transformation of an emerging economy, a nation that rose from bare subsistence in the early 1920s to a thriving market economy as it approaches its European Union (EU) destination. On October 3, 2005, the European Union foreign ministers reached a landmark agreement on an accession framework with Turkey and held their first ministerial meeting marking the official opening of full membership talks. The decision to start accession talks was a challenge, not only for Turkey but for the majority of the EU member states as well. An associate member of the EU since the 1963 Ankara Agreement and an applicant for full membership since 1987, Turkey has faced ongoing opposition from the majority of EU governments and the European public.

Keywords: Ankara Agreement; European Union (EU) destination; Turkey
