The paper discusses the EU's success at integrating monetary policy through the European Central Bank (ECB) as well as economically within the context of a single currency.

From the Paper:

"The European Union (EU) has, since its inception, fostered much debate regarding its ultimate success at integrating monetary policy through the European Central Bank (ECB) as well as economically within the context of a single currency. Yet, despite all the debate, the EU finds itself not only functioning but expanding: "European Union enlarges from 15 to 25 members and tries to write itself a first-ever European constitution" (Dale, 2003, para.2). The EU as a political and economic model has its conception in the Maastricht Treaty of 1992 when a union of European states was formalized into the EU; however, the idea of a unified Europe has its roots in the period following World War II when a cohesive European Community was sought to aid in recovery (Harrop, 1998)."
