“A day will come when all nations on our continent will form a European brotherhood ... A day will come when we shall see ... the United States of America and the United States of Europe face to face, reaching out for each other across the seas.”
Victor Hugo, International Peace Congress, 1849.
The European Union is a unique economic and political union between 28 European countries that together cover much of the continent.The EU was created in the aftermath of the Second World War. The first steps were to foster economic cooperation: the idea being that countries that trade with one another become economically interdependent and so more likely to avoid conflict. What began as a purely economic union has evolved into an organisation spanning policy areas, from climate, environment and health to external relations and security, justice and migration. A name change from the European Economic Community (EEC) to the European Union (EU) in 1993 reflected this. Because of its global influence, the European Union has been described as an emerging superpower; nevertheless, will this situation endure in the future against the endangerment of dissolution. One of the main bodies of EU is European Council which leaders of Europe met at least four times a year to determine their common policies. Delegates in European Council will have a huge influence on shaping the world’s agenda.
