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 European Union’s leading economic power, Germany is peaceful without being pacific, it is attached to the protection of the environment and is economically open. It was a founder member of the European Union; its institutional culture and its federal reality facilitate its ease with the mechanisms and practices of the Union. It has also developed a strong bilateral relationship with France. Its history defines its visions and perceptions, since it was only unified in 1870 under the impetus of Otto von Bismarck. Germany was forced to pay heavy reparations to its neighbours after the First World War. In 1933 Hitler came to power and triggered the Second World War in 1939. Following this Germany was invaded by the Allies and separated into two entities, one of which adopted a communist regime. The Berlin Wall fell on 9th November 1989 and Germany reunified on 3rd October 1990.
