Abstract

New attention has been recently given to various models of differentiated integration in the European Union which takes many peculiar forms and reaches different levels. Various forms of differentiated integration are present also in the EU’s external relations and policies. This panel deals with this topic, exploring it from various perspectives and different methodological approaches and, in so doing, discussing its implications for the EU (and beyond). One paper explores external differentiation through network governance, using Turkey as a case study. It shows how external differentiated integration through more horizontal, sector-driven and inclusive modes of network governance allows for extraterritorial rule and norm promotion in Turkey. The second perspective zooms in on Turkey’s external differentiated integration with the EU in the field of migration governance and, specifically, in the area of border management, aiming to uncover the extent and drivers of Turkey’s external differentiated integration with the EU. Last but not least, the panel concentrates also on the differentiation and power asymmetry, exploring the potential change in power relations wrought by Brexit-related differentiation during the Article 50 withdrawal negotiations. In particular, the focus here is on examination and comparison of two of the UK’s bilateral relationships long defined by acute power asymmetry: Czechia and the Slovak Republic.
