The relations between Turkey and the European Union has been a long subject of discussion. Not least due to the fact Turkey has been pursuing an active policy for membership for over two decades and if its application is accepted, it would become the first Muslim member of the EU. This research will provide some insight into the development of Turkey’s application by exploring the problems faced during the first years of submitting the request. The positioning of Turkey shall be elucidated upon to provide a full picture of the importance of Turkey’s place in regional and international politics. A brief comparison with Greece will be discussed so as to further display the candidacy of Turkey. Directly addressing the benefits of Turkey joining the EU will show the impact the country can have in building bridges whilst strengthening the economic and military aspect of the EU
