  • Turkey at the Gates? Inclusion and Exclusion at the National and Supranational Level in Europe
  • Meistara
  • Citizenship, inclusion and exclusion are the themes at the basis of this thesis. It
    asks whether supranational citizenship at the EU level is more open and inclusive
    than national citizenship. This is explored by comparing Turkey’s quest for EU
    membership to the access of Turkish guest workers in Germany to citizenship and
    political rights. Muslims have historically been viewed as Other in Europe. As a
    result Turkey’s EU accession bid radically tests the limits of belonging in Europe
    and is ideal to study processes of inclusion and exclusion. Germany was chosen
    to study corresponding processes at the national level because it is where the
    largest Turkish diaspora, numbering over 2.5 million, resides. Some have
    perceived of the EU as the future site of a new, more inclusive supranational
    citizenship, which could remedy exclusion engendered by globalization. In this
    thesis it is argued that this vision is, for a number of reasons, inconsistent with
    reality. A comparison of the reception of Turkey in the EU and Turks in Germany
    supports this argument. It reveals a number of parallels and that similar
    exclusionary policies and discourses are pursued at the two levels of governance.
