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 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.

Slovakia
In the east of the European Union on the borders of Ukraine with its Gothic cathedral reputed to be one situation the “furthest east in Europe”, Slovakia is truly a part of the history and geography of European integration. Being part of Hungary from the 10th century it was reunited with Bohemia and Moravia to form Czechoslovakia in 1919, a union that was maintained after the Second World War. In 1989 the Slovaks rejected communism during the Velvet Revolution and in 1993 they separated amicably from the Czech Republic. The authoritarian nature of Vladimir Meciar’s government prevented Slovakia from joining the EU immediately but it finally joined in 2004 and adopted the euro in 2009.
