Turkiye's accession to the European Union has been considered one of the most debatable cases of European Union enlargement policies. Several complex external domestic issues have led to the complication of its accession to the European Union. Moreover, it brings forth geographic, cultural, and religious problems in the European continent and its organizational ability limits. Although Turkiye's accession to the European Union appears farther away, it is operationally incorporated into the European Union in various ways: collaboration through business transactions, foreign and security affairs, and energy affairs. Hence, it is significant to evaluate whether Turkiye's candidacy for the European Union is still plausible, seeing several hurdles the member countries create in integration into its formal membership. The present paper assesses the issues faced by Turkiye to get membership in the European Union. Moreover, it provides the prospects of Turkish ties with the European Union. The report delves into the Turkish candidacy for the European Union. It also provides an introduction and the historical background of the relationship between Turkiye and the European Union.
