    On March 6, 1995, the European Union (EU) and Turkey agreed, under the terms of Association Agreement signed in Ankara in 1963, to launch a customs union between them from the beginning of 1996. For Turkey, the customs union represents a step towards full-membership of the EU. From Brussels, it is economically a major extension of the European single market and politically a much needed answer to the geo-strategic challenge of reinforcing Turkey's European linkage. A dynamic analysis of the prospects for EU-Turkey relations should consider different development perspectives of the European integration process. This paper tries to generalize and simplify these perspectives in three basic scenarios on the future of the European Union: 1) Federal Europe, 2) Confederal Union, and 3) Variable Geometry Europe.
