Gli Stati Uniti e il ruolo internazionale della CEE: l'associazione della Turchia 1959-1963


Turkey’s adhesion to the European Union - negotiated since 2005 and now arguably ending in dead end – has its political and legal root in the association agreement signed in Ankara in July 1963. In this reap-praisal of the genesis of the agreement, we argue that the treaty was the result of a triangular negotiation involving Turkey, the EEC and the United States. Against accepted wisdom, the parties hardly found a compromise between national economic interests, global economic concerns and politico-strategic pre-occupations. The hardly agreed contents of the 1963 association agreement bound the EEC and Turkey in a difficult relationship for the next decades.
