How Serious is Erdogan about Joining the SCO Instead of the EU?
ANALYSIS, Turkey Analyst, Volume 6, No. 2, January 30 2013. Webpage Link

Abstract:
Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s talk of joining the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and abandoning the pursuit of EU membership cannot be dismissed as loose talk, but neither does it herald a major strategic pivot. The Turkey of Erdoğan will continue to privilege and nurture its relations with the West, above all with the U.S., Erdoğan’s anti-Western prejudices and sentiments notwithstanding. And Erdoğan’s embrace of a club of autocrats should not obscure the fact that a very significant portion of the population of Turkey still endorses the goal of EU membership, and that holds true not least among the voters of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).

Keywords:
Turkey, AKP, SCO, EU, Erdogan
