Abstract (2. Language): 
The accession of Turkey to the European Union is undoubtedly the most complex and throughout all processes of enlargement of the bloc. Turkey is the country that waited longer to enter the European Union, always threatening to quit, but never actually leaving. What is sought to explain here are not only the reasons for such complexity, but the reason for the persistence of this relationship that has lasted over 50 years.
