Abstract (2. Language): 
European Union is the main interest of this paper on account of the longestablished integration from 1950’s. This paper examines the process of convergence in relative GDP per capita across European Union countries and candidate countries. As we found cross-section dependence, we present second generation panel cointegration tests of the theory for the European Union countries and candidate countries for the period 1990-2011. This paper also shows country-specific conditional and unconditional convergence at the long-run model by way of using Common Correlated Effect Model. This contribution gives crucial information about the European Union countries and candidate countries.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Avrupa Birliği 1950’den beri köklü bir entegrasyon olması nedeniyle bu çalışmanın asıl inceleme konusudur. Bu çalışma nispi kişi başına GSYH yakınsama sürecini Avrupa Birliği ülkeleri ve aday ülkeler açısından incelemektedir. Teoriyi yatay kesit bağımlılığı bulduğumuz için Avrupa Birliği ülkeleri ve aday ülkeler için ikinci kuşak panel koentegrasyon testleri ile 1990-2011 dönemi için ortaya koyduk. Bu çalışma ayrıca ülke spesifik koşullu ve koşulsuz yakınsama sonuçlarını uzun dönem modelinde Ortak İlişkili Etkiler Modeli kullanılarak vermektedir. Bu katı AB ülkeleri ve aday ülkeler için çok önemli bilgiler sağlamaktadır.
