Civil-military relations in Turkey are changing as the country prepares for EU membership, and they will continue to change as accession draws closer. The contributors to this book have all been involved in the international project on governance and the military in Turkey, which ran from June 2004 until the end of May 2006. This volume comprises the final report, compiled by David Greenwood, of the international task force convened by our project, plus four of the working papers written for the task force by Turkish and Dutch experts, and a paper written by a Dutch student during an internship in Istanbul.
