Although EU membership talks are expected to finish in 2014, fully-fledged membership is far from certain. There is growing concern in both Turkey and the West about Turkey’s ‘Islamisation’.Ann Dismorr examines the implications of Turkey’s affiliation with Europe while also addressing its role in the Middle East and its complex relationship with the US. She pays particular attention to the sweeping reforms initiated by the Justice and Development Party, and to the career and policies of one-time political prisoner and current Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan.From the unique viewpoint of one of the few female ambassadors to Turkey, Dismorr describes a country in transition, covering topics from the Kurds to the Iraq War, women’s rights, the crisis over Cyprus and the polarizing presidential election of 2007.Ann Dismorr is an ambassador and is currently head of the international department at the Swedish parliament.

She has been a diplomat for twenty-five years, serving as Swedish ambassador to Turkey from 2001–5.
