History of the European UnionAbstractThe history of the European Union has grown out of the ashes of World War II. In an effort that seeks to unify the smaller countries in the region into a much larger, united Europe, is now seeing many of their goals accomplished. Over the last fifty years, the formulation of regulatory bodies overseen by representatives from each member state and its new euro-currency, the European Union is quickly becoming an economic powerhouse.

Institutions of the EUThere are five institutions involved in running the EU. The first, being the European Parliament, It's elected by the peoples of the Member States.Second, The EU Council, which represents the governments of each Member State. Third, The Commission, which is the executive branch and body that has the right to initiate legislation. Fourth, The Court of Justice put together to ensure compliance with EU law. Last, The Court of Auditors, who maintain the responsibility for auditing the accounts.These institutions are supported by other bodies: the Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions (advisory bodies which help to ensure that the positions of the EU's various economic and social categories and regions respectively are taken into account), the European Ombudsman (dealing with complaints from citizens concerning maladministration at European level), the European Investment Bank (EU financial institution) and the European Central Bank (responsible for monetary policy in the euro-area).The EuroFor the first time since the Roman Empire, a large portion of Europe now shares a common currency, the euro.

It will be the first time the continent of Europe will have its own currency and the first time there has been such an achievement without war. (Europia, 2001, 1)The EU: A Superpower in the MakingIt's hard to believe that just over fifty years ago, Europe picked itself out of the ashes of World War II and decided to unite.
