Greeks in Istanbul: Interview with Patriarch Bartholomew I

Turkish Policy Quarterly, Spring 2011: Turkey & the EU - Stronger Together?

 

In this issue, TPQ takes up three interrelated themes, Turkey's EU accession process, home grown democratization, and potential synergies created in the foreign policy realm. Just as progress in each of these policy arenas reinforces the other, problems in one front has the potential to strain or impair the others.

ESI analyst Nigar Goksel interviewed Bartholomew I, the Patriarch of Istanbul, for this issue of Turkish Policy Quarterly. He points out that

"today, one can comfortably talk about the very unfair and unjust practices of the past and consensus can be reached regarding the fact that these practices have hurt not only non-Muslims but the entire country."
