The European Union Today

06 July 2010

The House of Lords Library has published a new Library Note on the European Union Today.

The Note The European Union Today (PDF), provides a broad outline of the history and development of the European Union. It explains the key treaties that led to the formation of the EU, describes the enlargement of the Union, gives a brief overview of the European institutions and provides a short description of the EU budget. The Note concludes by presenting a selection of key statistics comparing the EU to the US, Japan, China and Russia and a selection of key indicators for each of the current EU Member States and candidate states.
