The formal process of Turkey´s accession to the EU has started. The result is open, but both sides have to take all measures to make membership possible. At the same time in public the question is discussed whether Turkey is really part of Europe. The genesis of the geopolitical image of Turkey and that of Europe is determined by ideological strategies, which can not be verified by an academic analysis in most cases. Many one-sided, distorted representations are detected (history, religion, Cyprus). The construction of “Europe”- propagated by politics and media- as a natural continent and/or as a continent of European civilization is untenable: neither geological, nor socio-cultural limits can be used for a sufficient exclusion of Turkey.
