Economic Integration

  • John McCormick
Part of the The European Union Series book series (EUS)


Economic issues have dominated the life and work of the European Union. Beginning with the experiment in pooling coal and steel production, and moving through the customs union, the common agricultural policy, exchange rate stability, the single market and the single currency, the EU agenda has been driven in large part by matters involving trade, tariffs, markets, currencies, competition and labour mobility. It has only been relatively recently that the agenda of integration has broadened to include a wider variety of policy issues, from social affairs to the environment.
