Permanent Atlas
of the European Union
With its 27 Member States and its 447 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 third 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 current challenges 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, 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 Marie B, the Robert Schuman Foundation has published the 3rd English edition of the Permanent Atlas of the European Union, a book full of geopolitical information.
