    A) Geographically, the union has grown from 6 original members in the 1950's to 27 today. 
    B) Economically, the union has expanded from its roots in the coal and steel industries, moved on to bigger goals of a "single market" and free movement of goods, services, capital and people, and now includes a monetary union for 16 (soon to be 17) of it's members. 
    C) Politically, the union has shifted over time away from purely inter-governmental negotiations, and has begun to take on various attributes of a supra-national (or even federal state). 
  • 58. Team Project
    Controversy:
    As the EU has expanded, there has also been a growing controversy regarding how much expansion is appropriate. 
  • 59. Team Project

  • 63. Team Project
    Economic / business dimension :
    For the economic / business dimension, students will focus on the Single Market and objectives (4 freedoms)
    Concepts to consider include:
    How does the single market help European businesses to compete with global competitors (US, Japan, China, etc). 
    How has expansion into Eastern Europe helped / hurt this goal?
    How important has the euro currency been to this project? 
    What are the key issues of the single market in the future?
  • 64. Team Project
    Political dimension
    Students will focus on issues related to national sovereignty and the transfer of power from national capitals to Brussels. 
    Answering the following questions…
    What do you think the EU should be in the future? 
    Should it become a "United States of Europe", totally unified and a super-state, or should it be a looser union (not any deeper than now)?
    more…
  • 65. Team Project
    Political dimension
