Abstract (2. Language): 
This paper analyzes data drawn from the 2006 and 2010 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) surveys to compare how the attitudes of MEPs toward Turkey have changed. Through cross-tabulations, the paper presents some preliminary evidence that the Right in the current European Parliament (EP) is less friendly towards Turkey than was the Right in the previous EP, while the Left is friendlier towards Turkey than before. Although it needs further evidence to support this claim, one may suggest that the gap between the Right and the Left on the question of Turkish accession might be widening. Since no single group has the majority in the EP, the polarization on the question of Turkey may complicate con-sensus-building on Turkey, which is often necessary to vote down anti-Turkey proposals.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu çalışma, Avrupa Parlamentosu (AP) üyelerinin Türkiye’ye karşı değişen tutumlarını 2006 ve 2010 yılı ‘Avrupa Parlamentosu Üyeleri’ anketlerini karşılaştırarak incelemektedir. Makalede ki çapraz tablolar şuan ki AP sağ partileri üyelerinin bir önceki AP sağ partileri üyelerine göre Türkiye'nin AB’ye katılma-sına karşı daha negatif tutumlu olduğunu göstermektedir. Öte yandan, şuan ki AP solu bir önceki AP so-luna göre Türkiye’nin tam üyeliğine karşı daha olumlu yaklaşmaktadır. Her ne kadar tek bir çalışma ile genelleme yapmak zor ise de, AP sağı ile solu Türkiye konusunda daha fazla polarize olmuştur. Bu du-rum, AP’de Türkiye karşıtı yasalara karşı partiler arası bir koalisyon oluşturulmasını daha da zorlaştıra-caktır.
