The research on relations between Turkey and the European Union usually focuses on the Turkish state's relations with European institutions. As the boundaries between international and domestic politics blur, there is need for a new approach. Based on the transnational model in international relations theory, this book surveys the Turkish civil society organizations' relations with the EU, in their efforts to strategically alter the state's preferences in favor of their own political agenda. Focusing on three types of civil society actors, i.e., businessmen's associations, workers' unions, and nongovernmental organizations, the research delineates the mechanisms behind these actors' interactions with the EU since 1959, when Turkey first applied for membership. The book provides a detailed analysis of Turkish civic life, showing the linkages between local, national and international developments, and comparing eight different organizations' evolution through time. It aims to be a source for students of Turkish civil society, and for those who would like a new perspective to how international organization-state-civil society relations work.
