It is the most recent in a series of European cooperative organizations that originated with the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) of 1951, which became the European Community (EC) in 1967.
In 1991 the governments of the 12 member states signed the Treaty on European Union (commonly called the Maastricht Treaty), which was then ratified by the national legislatures of all the member countries.
Some supporters of European political unity, such as the French statesman Jean Monnet, further believed that if the nations of Europe were to resume a dominant role in world affairs, they had to speak with one voice and command resources comparable to those of the United States.

 3 - EUROPEAN SECURITY INTEGRATION IN THE 1990s
Integration is the combination of diverse parts to make a whole, and international integration is the product of a process of convergence between the policies, procedures, institutions, commitments, and expectations of a number of different states and peoples.
European integration is not merely a means to utilitarian ends such as security or prosperity, but a cause, a form of ideology.
To analyse European integration exclusively in terms of bargaining among utility-maximizing states or individuals, European integration as a cooperative solution to nation-state problems, or as a forerunner of a `post-historical' global system, is to misunderstand this political commitment and miss the character of the European movement.

 European Integration
The revitalization of the process of European integration in the mid- 1980s was a revitalization of the process of economic integration.
Furthermore European social (and regional) policies did not get off the ground and the EU is often considered merely to be a "Fortress", protecting the Western European farmers.
Thus the European Union is not "the political union of Europe", but an (important) economic community in Europe, which is expected to become an economic and monetary union at the turn of the century.

 On European integration
European integration is a by-product of the internationalisation of the market economy.
Accelerating the integration process was made imperative by the growing internationalisation of the market economy and the intensifying competition with the other two parts of the Triad (North America and Far East).
Consequently, the European Union’s executive power has been confined to creating a homogeneous institutional framework that allows for unimpeded entrepreneurial activity, while, simultaneously, providing for some minimal guarantees (those compatible with the neoliberal consensus requirements) regarding the protection of the environment and the social space.

Abstract: European integration is at a turning point with implications for all member states and their citizens.
A group of leading scholars argues that the shift towards constitutional issues is rooted not only in the issues on the European level but also in shifting models of political and economic organization in the member states.
Paradoxically, however, this push towards integration is accompanied by a number of institutional changes and political decisions, which challenge the picture of ongoing integration and indicate a shift towards a new pluralism in the Euro-polity.
