Permanent Atlas
of the European Union
With its 28 Member States and its 510 million inhabitants the European Union is the leading economic power in the world.
And yet when people speak of it, they only mention the problems experienced in its construction and it remains largely misunderstood.
This edition of the Atlas of the European Union is a work of reference that presents the Union, its institutions, each of its Member States and their overseas territories via their history, their culture and their reality. With over 50 maps, original information sheets and synthetic statistics, it offers a unique view of Europe and is accessible to all.

It is a vital tool to get to know and to understand the issues at stake in the 21st century, the present economic crisis and the opportunities for Europe and the euro in a world in transformation.
Written by experts at the Robert Schuman Foundation – one of the very foremost think-tanks devoted to European integration – the atlas provides easy to find information on Europe.

Innovative because it is permanent, meaning that via free access to the website www.atlas-permanent.eu, its content is regularly updated so that everyone can access the most recent data on an ever evolving Europe at any time.
With the Editions Lignes de Repères and the support of the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies, the Robert Schuman Foundation has published the 1st English edition of the Permanent Atlas of the European Union, a book full of geopolitical information.

The information in this Atlas is regularly updated. To access it, enter your email address below and the ISBN of the book.

Ireland
For a long time Ireland fought to assert itself and guards its sovereignty jealously which had been so difficult to win. Divided into a multitude of clans it progressively fell under English domination in the Middle Ages against which it rebelled on several occasions. Integrated as part of the UK in 1800, it was only in 1921 that it won its badly desired independence, but at a price, since it lost Ulster, which remained British. Membership of the European Union in 1973 led to Ireland’s spectacular economic success, which was very open to foreign investments. Within the Union is it traditionally against tax integration and aims to protect its specific features, including its neutrality.
