(p.155) 7 Conclusion
Turkey's European Future

Nathalie Tocci

NYU Press

This concluding chapter sums up and elaborates the principal findings of the book. In the expansion of one's understanding of how America influences Turkey's path to Europe, it becomes clear why and how the impact of the United States is far more significant. The influence of the United States is prevalent, but is not always positive, nor intentional, nor always immediately observable. The chapter stresses on the areas of fit and misfit in transatlantic debates on Turkey and in the corresponding stakeholders who articulate these debates. American impact on EU–Turkey relations is multifaceted, yet a general pattern emerges. This pattern serves as the basis on which the book puts forth various general policy suggestions, mainly addressing the question of how the United States could pursue its goal of promoting Turkey's integration into the EU more effectively.
