  • Özge Zihnioğlu
Part of the Palgrave Studies in European Union Politics book series


Chapter 4 showed that the EU instruments have not always been successful in securing support for as well as interest in and involvement from civil society organizations in Turkey’s accession to the EU. Furthermore, the impact of these instruments on strengthening civil society organizations and improving the environment within which they operate has been rather limited. Hence, with their unexpected and controversial results, these instruments have, to a large extent, failed to serve the purposes set out by EU civil society policy. Having shown the troubles of EU civil society policy and its instruments, the question remains as to what is wrong with this policy. This book suggests two interrelated reasons, which are elaborated in Chapters 5 and 6, respectively.
