April 2018 Post-Varna EU-Turkey Relations. Neither a Break-Through, nor a Break-up

Abstract

The Varna summit that took place on March 26th, 2018 did not bring any breakthrough in the EU-Turkey relationship, with neither side willing to compromise its stance on none of the numerous issues on the agenda. At the same time, however, mutual interdependence on issues such as trade and migration means that however frosty the relations may be, a divorce of this troubled political and economic marriage is not in the interest neither of Ankara, nor of Brussels.
