The Turkish Economic and Social Studies Foundation’s (TESEV) survey “European Union Survey" : 3060 face-to- face interviews were conducted in 17 Turkish cities located in rural and urban regions and representative of the Turkish electorate. The interviews took place between May 18th- June 4th, 2000. The fieldwork was conducted by Frekans Research:
EU relationships are built upon issues that are seemingly easy to agree on, these are perceived and evaluated differently by various groups within the public. The project aims at analysing the subgroups in the public opinion demonstrating a significant difference in their perceptions, attitudes and preferences, in order to evaluate the relationship between Turkey and the EU and to orientate policies on the national and international spheres.

The Turkish Economic and Social Studies Foundation’s (TESEV) survey “Religion, Society and Politics in
Turkey ” results were first published in 2000, the fieldwork was conducted by Frekans Research:
This study attempts to analyse the relationship between religiosity on the one hand and socio- political attitudes and behaviour on the other. It is based on a survey conducted in February 1999 with a representative sample of the Turkish electorate.

The results of the study provide interesting insights into understanding the relationship between religion and politics in Turkey. According to the results, the majority of the Turkish people are practicing Muslims and devout believers. However, religious belief and practice is considered to be limited to private life and the idea of religious involvement in public life is not supported. On the other hand, the interference of The state in religious life is not approved either. The results of the study also show that the percentage of people who want an Islamic state in Turkey is relatively high (21.2%).
