Prof. Dr. Ayhan Kaya-Asst. Prof. Dr. Senem Aydın Düzgit ANALYSIS OF THE 2009 ANNUAL PROGRAMME FOR TURKEY UNDER THE INSTRUMENT FOR PRE-ACCESSION ASSISTANCE (IPA) IN THE CONTEXT OF THE 2009 ENLARGEMENT PACKAGE
This Briefing Paper analyses the coherence of the IPA Annual Programme (AP) 2009 for
Turkey with the EU overall policy objectives as further specified in the pre-accession
process in general and for Turkey in particular.
It assesses the pertinence of the elements of analysis included in the AP and their potential to respond to the conditions/needs identified in Turkey. In responding to this task, the AP's allocation of funding and composition of projects are projected against Turkey's specific needs as identified by the European Commission's (EC) Progress Report (Commission 2009a) and the Enlargement Strategy (Commission 2009b). On the basis of this analysis, the briefing provides recommendations concerning the adjustments that could be made to planning and implementing future EU activity in Turkey.
