Advantages of the European Union
The European Union or EU is a unique economic and political partnership between 28 European countries that together cover much of the European continent. The EU was borne from the aftermath of World War II. The goal was to encourage economic cooperation between countries. It was presumed that countries that were trading partners were less likely to attack each other. This was known as the European Economic Community or ECC and was created in 1958. ("", 2013)

The EU also offers a number of social benefits to its members. Member countries follow the standards adopted by the European Union for things like individual safety of citizens, employment safety, health, education, information and an overall better quality of life. ("", 2013)
