Through this article we want to follow the path of the studies to date on cultural and political dimension of European Identity, focusing on the role of otherness in shaping it. To this end is brought into question the relationship between the European Union and Turkey, as an aspirant to membership of the Community, highlighting the fact that the way the case of the Turkish state is managed reflects what we are or want to be as a United Europe. Thus, if in studies conducted on the topic of how people of Europe define their collective identity, Turkey is used for comparison, the research that we propose focuses on the perception of young Turkish on European values and institutions, to capture the degree of their affiliation to them. It has been elected the social category of youth, with and without higher education, aged between 18 and 24 years, as it constitutes the main target of Europeanisation policies undertaken by European leaders.
