A referendum on the proposed changes to Turkey’s constitution will take place on 16th April 2017. The changes proposed would significantly alter the structure of Turkey’s government and so the vote has big implications for Turkey’s future.

During the referendum period, Turkey’s diplomatic relations with several EU countries have been strained. The result of the referendum will likely have an impact on Turkey’s accession to the EU. In this exclusive roundtable, Pieter Cleppe will discuss the referendum result and Turkey-EU relations.
