This chapter reflects on the changes in EU policy related to the proposed accession to the Union by Turkey. It comments on the basic political objective of the 1963 Association Agreement with Turkey, reviews the wording and spirit of the agreement, and highlights Turkey's slow alignment to common market principles. It then examines the position of the EU's Court of Justice with regards to the 1963 Agreement. This chapter concludes with a section on how Turkey developed from an applicant State to a candidate State that negotiates accession.
