19 July 2013
Romain Pardo (Former Policy Analyst at the EPC)

Between a rock and a hard place: What is Turkey’s place in the transatlantic market?
9 July 2013
Amanda Paul (Senior Policy Analyst) and Serdar Yeşilyurt (External authors)

For Turkey, a key partner of both the EU and US, the TTIP represents a considerable economic threat because of its existing Customs Union with the EU, which obliges Ankara to open its market to the countries with which the EU negotiates FTAs, yet at the same time Turkish products and services  are not allowed to enter these third countries since Turkey is not an EU member, write Amanda Paul and Serdar Yeşilyurt in this Commentary.

20 June 2013

Challenges for the EU in the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Azerbaijani and Armenian perspectives
17 June 2013
Richard Giragosian (External authors) and Zaur Shiriyev (Senior Research Fellow, ADA University)

The EU still remains very much a peripheral player in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, seemingly content with supporting the efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group and financing a number of confidence and peace-building projects. However, with the EU being one of the most ‘neutral’ external powers involved in the region, and having made conflict resolution a priority of both its European Neighbourhood Policy and Eastern Partnership, there would seem to be scope for Brussels to take on a greater role, argue Zaur Shiriyev and Richard Giragosian in these two Policy Briefs.
