Abstract:

This volume examines the construction of Turkey's possible European Union
accession in French political discourse. In today's France, heated debates
regarding Turkey's EU membership are turning into an essential part of
European identity formation. Once again, the 'Turkish Other' functions as a
mirror for defining not only the 'European Self', but also European values. By
providing a genuine and multi-disciplinary approach for studying the Otherness
attributed to Turkey, this book contributes to our understanding of the
Self/Other nexus in International Relations. Within a Critical Discourse
Analysis framework, this study explores the socio-historical basis of the
construction of Turkey's Otherness in an attempt to identify the processes
through which past memories, representations, images and fantasies regarding
Turkey are inserted into the French social imaginary. Focusing on these
significations, which are (re)produced and become manifest through language,
this book strives to uncover the link between discourse and political action.
