    The Rome Treaty which founded the European Economic Community set forth what have come to be regarded as the "Four Freedoms," namely the free movement of capital, goods, services and persons. The latter is an issue which is an essential part of the original concept of a European Community. Similarly, in the context of Turkey-EU relations, it is a very important and controversial policy area. Official notification concerning the importance attached to this issue can be seen in the Commission Opinion of 18 December 1989, in response to Turkey's application for full membership in 1987. The Opinion stated the "access of Turkish labour to Community labour market ... gives rise to fears, particularly while unemployment remains at a high level within the Community." Given that continuing high unemployment trends are still evident within the member states, this issue has therefore remained a problem area within the general context of Turkey-EU relations.
