This aims to adequately reward their positive results </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The “scale” drove the scoring process and was calculated as follows: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(max value – min value) / max score </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Having fixed the “scale”, the score of each State was estimated as follows: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(Country value – min value) / scale </li></ul></ul></ul>

    25. 25. “ The fundamental aim of European unity must be to preserve our democratic way of life and our traditions of civilisation and freedom, and to strengthen our free national institutions. (...) This economic co-ordination can be sought by a whole series of methods - ranging from a customs union to a lowering of tariffs and to preferential tariffs; from a single confederal bank, established by a monetary convention, to which the various international banks would accede, to a single currency, whether this be for accounting purposes or cash transactions; from the abolition of quotas to a single market. (...) The determining factor in our work, the driving force, must be our political determination to achieve European unity. Economic co-operation is, of course, a matter of compromise between the natural desire for independence of each participant and overriding political aspirations. (...) So it is the political aspiration for unity which must prevail. We must be guided above all by the overriding realisation that it is essential to build a united Europe in order to ensure for ourselves peace, progress, and social justice.” Alcide De Gasperi – speech at the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe on September 15, 1952.
    26. 26. European nations should become, with time, “a vast common market in which none of the members find restrictions on their individual development, without however creating difficulties for others’ development […]. With the common consent of its populations, Europe is advancing towards a new era, a union […] in which all will bring their contribution to a common venture, whose fruits are destined to expand and render everyone’s lives safer. […] The League was founded for a peace based on rights and guaranteed by justice […] so that every man is given the opportunity to operate in the field in which his energies can best be employed for the community […] for a constant exchange of ideas and acquaintances to the advantage of all countries and for the liberty of trade, that exchange of natural and industrial products without restrictions that, alone, can satisfy the material needs of the populations”. Giuseppe Mazzini – Letter about the constitution of the “Giovine Europa”
    27. 27. “ The countries of Europe are not strong enough individually to be able to guarantee prosperity and social development for their peoples. The States of Europe must therefore form a federation or a European entity that would make them into a common economic unit.” “ Continue, continue, there is no future for the people of Europe other than in union.” “ Make men work together show them that beyond their differences and geographical boundaries there lies a common interest.” Jean Monnet
