Abstract: The longstanding E.U. members have continuously found ways to delay a positive decision on Turkey's membership. Although various reasons have been offered across time, it is undeniable that Turkey is perceived as culturally different by the public as well as political decision makers in the E.U. To what degree does this perception influence decision making regarding Turkey's entry into the E.U.? The author investigates this question through two strategies; first, the author will assess the benefits and costs of Turkey's admission to the E.U. This assessment will include economic and political issues that would affect the E.U. Second, the author will examine public opinion regarding European nationalism and Turkey using data from the Eurobarometer public opinion surveys for France and Germany. Are attitudes in favor of Turkey's accession from people who are less nationalistic? Are people who are nationalistic and strongly value the European identity more likely to be against the accession?
