Summary

In this article, I focused on Turkey’s membership process of EU within constructionism. More than economic and politic issues and incompatibilities, I studied for identity, in another word, culture. So that, I tried to get an idea about possibility of final membership. First of all, I referred to key features of constructionism, plus identity and culture. Then, at the main part, I explained the identity problem between European Union and Turkey. For make it clear, I looked at EU identity and similarities and differences of member states at this perspective. Plus, I mentioned that identity-seeking of Turkey and its cultural originality. At this part, I also mentioned about mutual interaction, reactions, veto points and general public opinion. At the result part, I emphasized the importance of identity which is shaped by culture, and then advantages and disadvantages about full membership of EU on that frame. I used academic articles and books, websites of institutions, and some statistical datas.
