Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
In this article, European enlargement will be analyzed with specific reference to the Turkish case. Instead of goal-oriented and rational-comprehensive approaches, incrementalism and process-driven approaches will be employed. Based on these analytical tools, it will be argued that delay is not a problem but an opportunity for any solution based on democratic negotiation. In addition to this basic assumption, in this study it will also be put forth that incremental policies may cause major policy changes and that technical issues can hardly be separated from politics.
