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, 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 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.

Denmark is one of the oldest States in Europe, becoming a kingdom in the 10th century. In the Viking era it conquered many territories across all of northern Europe, and then federated all of the Scandinavian countries from the 14th to the 16th centuries in the Kalmar Union. Following this the Danes joined forces with the Protestants in the wars of religion, then with Napoleon in the 19th century. This meant that they lost Norway in 1814. Denmark also lost Schleswig-Holstein in 1854. During the first half of the 20th century it built a Welfare State and provided itself with a new Constitution. An EU Member State since 1973 Denmark has a very intergovernmental vision of Europe, participating in some policies but remaining distant from others (euro, security, defence).
