Abstract:In the context of EU enlargement policy, Turkey is probably the most controversially discussed EU membership candidate. However, Turkey’s relationship to Europe is mostly discussed in terms of whether it can be seen as a part of Europe. The actual historical connections are mostly overlooked especially for the time in which Turkey was part of the Ottoman Empire. This paper aims at analysing connections that existed during the late part of the Ottoman Empire and their impact. The research question for this study shall be: "How strong were the connections between Turkey as a part of the late Ottoman Empire and Europe?" Concentrating on four individual authors and their writings during the later period of the Ottoman by retrieving historical data from primary sources it is attempted to analyse what kind of connections can be found and how important they were for the involved parties. Secondary sources are used to illustrate the chapters with additional information about the historical context of the respective periods.
