The Fellowship on Turkey, Europe, and Global Issues is an initiative by the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), in partnership with the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB). Launched in June 2017, the initiative emphasizes the geopolitical and economic importance of the relationship between Turkey and the transatlantic partners. The fellowship promotes high-level debate in form of public events and private roundtable discussions, provides recommendations on developments in EU–Turkey relations as well as the significance this relationship has for transatlantic partners.

Our Projects

The EU-Turkey Reflection Group is a project undertaken by the GMF-TOBB Fellowship on Turkey, Europe, and Global Issues, under the auspices of the German Marshall Fund of the United States. This platform brings together a select group of interested experts from the European Union and Turkey to discuss pressing issues related to EU-Turkey relations.

The “Turkish Perceptions of the European Union” public opinion survey was conducted by The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) within the scope of the Fellowship on Turkey, Europe, and Global Issues Program. The study produces a detailed picture of Turkish perceptions of the European Union, EU countries, EU-Turkish relations, and Turkey’s accession to the European Union. The survey has been carried out in the months of March and April in 29 provinces of Turkey through face-to-face interviews with 2,000 people representing the age group of 18 and above.
