Özge Zihnioğlu Writes New Book on EU Civil Society Policy and Turkey

Özge Zihnioğlu, Lecturer of International Relations at Istanbul Kültür University, has published a new book entitled, European Union Civil Society Policy and Turkey: A Bridge Too Far? The book draws on her dissertation research and teaching experience to consider enlargement policy, civil society policy, and EU-Turkey relations.

Zihnioğlu was a Visiting Scholar at the European Union Center during spring 2012. During her stay, she taught a course on EU civil society policy and gave a public lecture on the "Europeanization of Turkish NGOs."

Her new book is an important contribution to the current scholarship on EU-Turkey relations. Earlier in September, it was the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Ankara Agreement between Turkey and the European Economic Community. The Turkish Studies Program at the University of Illinois offers language courses at the elementary, intermediate, and advanced levels, as well as culture courses offered in English and faculty-led study abroad programs.
