To do this, a theoretical framework has been established by using the neo-liberal institutionalist approach, and then a qualitative case study has been designed. Most of the data have been directly collected from several actors by using different methods. The collected data have been analysed with the help of the theoretical framework, and the main finding is that the current actors in Turkey who have an effect on the foreign trade policy demand to make a change within the EU-Turkey trade regime rather than to change the regime/to establish another alternative regime as a response to the EU’s increasing FTAs with third countries.
