Rather than achieving good governance in Turkey, the formal institutional change promoted by the EU has failed to eliminate the informal institutions of clientelism and patronage. Instead, the ruling party has been instrumental in using anticorruption measures to gain more control over state structures and replace old patronage structures with new ones, all the while enlarging on some neoliberal reforms in the economy. Recent deteriorations of press freedom and judiciary independence have also weighted down on control of corruption.
