The EU
  • The EU isnt a government, an association of
    states, or an international organization.
  • Rather, the 28 Member States have relinquished
    part of their sovereignty to EU institutions,
    with many decisions made at the European level.
  • The EU has delivered more than 60 years of peace,
    stability, and prosperity in Europe.
  • Raised the citizens living standards, launched a
    single European currency (the euro), and is
    progressively building a single Europe-wide free
    market for goods, services, people, and capital.

Over 50 Years of EU Integration
  • Enlargement has
  • Inspired reforms and consolidated common
    principles of liberty, democracy, respect for
    human rights, fundamental freedoms, the rule of
    law, and market economy.
  • Enhanced the EUs weight in the world and made it
    a stronger and more attractive international
    partner.

15
  • Enlargement has been a success story for the
    European Union and Europe as a whole. It has
    helped to overcome the division of Europe and
    contributed to peace and stability throughout the
    continent.
  • European Council Declaration Dec. 15, 2006
