The analyses on the associate status, its legal bases and its institutions are followed by analyses on Turkey?s full membership application in 1987, its candidacy status, reaffirmed by the 1999 Helsinki European Council and the membership negotiations between Turkey and the EU, which began effectively in 2005.
