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. The result was the European Economic Community, created in with the initial aim of increasing economic cooperation between six countries: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. What began as a purely economic union has evolved into an organisation spanning many different policy areas , from climate, environment and health to external relations and security, justice and migration. The EU has delivered more than half a century of peace, stability and prosperity, helped raise living standards and launched a single European currency: the euro. More than million EU citizens in 19 countries now use it as their currency and enjoy its benefits.
The politics of the European Union are different from other organisations and states due to the unique nature of the European Union EU. The EU is similar to a confederation , where many policy areas are federalized into common institutions capable of making law; however the EU does not, unlike most states, control foreign policy , defence policy or the majority of direct taxation policies the EU does limit the level of variation allowed for VAT. These areas are primarily under the control of the EU's member states although a certain amount of structured co-operation and coordination takes place in these areas. For the EU to take substantial actions in these areas, all Member States must give their consent. EU laws that override national laws are more numerous than in historical confederations; however the EU is legally restricted from making law outside its remit or where it is no more appropriate to do so at a national or local level subsidiarity when acting outside its exclusive competencies. The principle of subsidiarity does not apply to areas of exclusive competence.

In addition to meeting its initial commitments to peace and prosperity, the European Union has generated policies to address problems that national governments cannot resolve effectively on their own in an increasingly globalized world. However, while deepening European integration has benefited the member states of the European Union in countless ways, it has also had some unanticipated side effects on their national democracies. The problem for national democracies is not that EU policies have encroached on national ones, but that citizens have had little direct say. As decision-making in policy area after policy area has moved up to the EU level, European integration has increasingly encroached on issues at the very heart of national sovereignty and identity. Money and monetary policy, economic organization and labor markets, borders and immigration, public services and even welfare guarantees all increasingly come under EU policies or prescriptions.

The EU is a unique, complex, and ever-changing political entity which continues to shape both international politics and the politics of its individual member states.

ТРАНСТЕКСТ не может с ним справиться. Сьюзан подумала о Стратморе, о том, как мужественно он переносит тяжесть этого испытания, делая все необходимое, сохраняя спокойствие во время крушения. Иногда она видела в нем что-то от Дэвида.
Сьюзан Флетчер нетерпеливо мерила шагами туалетную комнату шифровалки и медленно считала от одного до пятидесяти.
Все-таки он опоздал. Плечи Беккера обмякли. - А на этот рейс были свободные места. - Сколько угодно, - улыбнулась женщина. - Самолет улетел почти пустой.
Ты нашла ключ. Сьюзан покачала головой. Стратмор наморщил лоб и прикусил губу.
Нам придется публично признать не только то, что мы имеем ТРАНСТЕКСТ, но и то, что Цифровая крепость неприступна. - Каким временем мы располагаем. Стратмор нахмурился: - Танкадо намерен назвать победителя аукциона завтра в полдень. Сьюзан почувствовала, что у нее сводит желудок. - А что .
