The Middle East is currently experiencing a period of crisis, which impacts severely on geopolitical order and security in the region and the adjacent areas. The collapse of state authority over particular areas in certain political contexts (e.g. Syria, Iraq), combined with the emergence of new proto-state entities (e.g. the so-called Islamic State [IS], Rojava), is deeply affecting the security environment from many aspects.

This study will focus on three areas: the Kurdish entity in northern Syria, the Black Sea region, and the issue of energy diversification for reducing dependence on Russia. The object of this study is to explore the potential for cooperation between the European Union and Turkey in meeting challenges and achieving common goals in these areas.
