After the Western European Union's (WEU) incorporation into the Common Se-curity and Defence Policy (CSDP) of the EU, Turkey lost her privileged status in the European security and defence architecture. The present study aims to expose the possible institutional "reparations" that could subside Ankara's dis-satisfactions concerning its post-WEU weakened status. With this objective in mind, the historical overview of Turkey's place in Western European security and defence cooperation will be explored first. Then, the political and institutional hurdles standing on Turkey's way to regain her earlier position will be exposed.
