Debate: Turkey & the EU

The Economist and the Stockholm Network host a debate to discuss whether Turkey's entry to the European Union is a risk worth taking.

Can the EU digest a largely Muslim, if officially secular, country? Will Europeans be happy at the prospect of Turkey becoming the biggest country by population, thus having the most votes and most seats in the European Parliament? Is the EU strong enough to absorb a country so much poorer than the rest of its 25 members? How far will Turkey’s human rights record come into account? Is it a good idea for the EU to extend its borders to Iran, Iraq and Syria? And how can the problem of Cyprus be resolved?
