This paper discusses the history of the European Union and then relates that history to the issues that the union contends with today. Issues such as the constitution, expansion of the union, and the economic concerns of the poorer countries are examples of these problems. The paper further suggests that solutions to these issues may be found in history.

From the Paper:

"In 1464 there was a proposal made to create the first European Union of Christian states. While the original plan did not come to pass, the concept of creating a unified Europe was never truly lost by the European people ("History"). Ideas such as "the United States of Europe", the "League of 18 Sovereign States", and the "Federation of European Republics" all were suggested, and rejected, as methods of creating a nation of European countries ("History"). It was not until 1943 that an actual union was seriously considered under the principles set forth by German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop. Ribbentrop proposed that European countries come together to create, "...a single currency, a central bank in Berlin, a regional principle, a labour policy and economic and trading agreements..." ("History"). "
