Relations of Turkey and EU in the Context of Readmission Agreement and Refugee Crisis

This article aims to analyze the policies implemented by Turkey regarding the Syrian refugees who took refuge in Turkey as from April 2011 following the Syrian crisis. In this context, the consequences of “Readmission Agreement” executed in between EU and Turkey which has a significant place in refugee crisis will be scrutinized. Also the details of the chaos caused by the refugees whose number is increasing day by day will be analyzed. In 2010, Middle East countries such as Yemen, Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Oman, Lebanon and Tunisia -in the first place- entered a period in which public meetings, protests, demonstrations, conflicts and civil wars against the regime occurred. It was called as Arab Spring, and the leap of this condition to Turkey’s neighbor Syria did not take long. In 2011, following the revolts against regime which started with the demand of freedom, democracy and innovation, the tension between Assad’s management and public increased. Ultimately, a civil war which cost thousands of people's lives and left tens of thousands of people stateless has started. In the period following these incidents, Turkey has faced intense migration, and in a short while, it has entered a period which necessitates extremely critical decisions concerning more than one public policy field. Due to this intense migration, Turkey has had to face many problems within the country.
