Turks not required to integrate

Even though Turkey is not an official member of the EU, they are being treated as one.  This decision to disallow integration courses for Turks bodes ill for Europe, Holland in particular.

From Dutch News August 15

Turks need not integrate

Turkish nationals do not have to attend integration courses, the court of appeal ruled on Tuesday in a case brought by the Dutch government.

The ruling states that because Turkey has an association agreement with the European Union, Turkish nationals living in the Netherlands may not be forced to attend language and civic studies courses.

The agreement implies that Turkey is part of the EU and EU citizens do not have to integrate, the court said.

Two earlier courts reached the same conclusion and no further appeal is possible.
