Who Are The Europeans And How Does This Matter For Politics?
The European Union has produced a remarkable set of agreements to guide the political interactions of countries across Europe in the past 50 years. These agreements have produced collective rules governing market transactions of all varieties, created a single currency, established a rule of law that includes a European court, and promoted increased interactions for people who live within the boundaries of Europe. Moreover, the EU has expanded from 6 to 27 countries. The endpoint of the European Union has been left intentionally vague and can be encapsulated by the ambiguous phrase "Towards an ever closer union".
