dc.description.abstractThe post-1999 expansion in Greek-Turkish economic exchanges has led to hopes in some quarters of a ‘decoupling’ of relations from the constrictive bonds imposed by traditional bilateral politics. The ultimate goal would be that, through their own ‘normalising’ effects, intensifying economic relations in time render irrelevant or obsolete many of the issues that for decades have divided the two countries. This paper argues (i) that the prospects for trade, tourism, energy cooperation and FDI, though positive and therefore supportive of a more benign climate, are unlikely by themselves to overturn long-held foreign-policy priorities in either country, and (ii) that the economic dimension as a means of conflict resolution will prove more effective if allowed to develop in parallel with Turkey’s EU accession process.
