This book examines the construction of Euroscepticism in civil society discourse, focusing on Turkeys possible EU-membership, the ongoing political struggles between different political camps in Turkey and general Western discourse. ApplyingMoreThis book examines the construction of Euroscepticism in civil society discourse, focusing on Turkeys possible EU-membership, the ongoing political struggles between different political camps in Turkey and general Western discourse. Applying semi-structured qualitative interviews with Civil Society Organisation leaders and Critical Discourse Analysis, the study shows how civil society leaders evaluate Europe and the European Integration of Turkey. It appears that there are multiple Eurosceptical argumentation strategies in the discourses varying according to ideological background and pro-government and anti-government positioning.
