"Turkey: In the Light of the Final EU Decision
H. Yener Ekrose
On 6th of October 2004 the EU Commission has finally announced 'the good news' and turned the green light on, suggesting within its report the commencement of membership talks with Turkey. 1 Long before that, the Turkish media had already been carrying out discussions on the European Union, even more intensively since Turkey signed the Customs Union Agreement in 1996. What awaits the Turkish society, the peculiar conditions for Turkey's accession, and the requirements that Turkey should further fulfill, figured prominently in media coverage after October. The Turkish media has not been alone in presenting such discussions, however. The same is true for the European media and also for some Arabic-language newspapers."
