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.

Hungary lies at the heart of Europe. Firstly from a geographical point of view, it lies at the crossroads of the Germanic and Balkan regions. From a historical point of view it was linked to Austria for a long time, which was a major power in Europe until the start of the 20th century; it fitted perfectly with its time, for the best with its many intellectuals and internationally renowned artists, and for the worse, with the rise of vehement nationalism that placed Hungary in the fascist sphere of influence in the darkest hours of the 20th century. After having freed itself of Austrian domination after the First World War it had to free itself, more painfully from the Soviet grip in order to turn the page on the Cold War and to take full part in the adventure of European integration.
