Abstract

Turkish - EU relations have occupied the Turkish political agenda since 1959. However, it was after the Cold War that the Turkish - EU relations gained momentum and began to have a deep running impact on Turkish socio-political developments. One such area of impact has been the political regime of Turkey. In an effort to accommodate the standards of Turkish democracy with the Copenhagen Criteria the Turkish governments have initiated several constitutional amendments. This paper analyzes the context and the nature of constitutional amendments made in the last three decades, and examine the role that the EU - Turkish relations played in the modification of the Turkish political regime.
