The EP and the Construction of Europe: From the Treaty of Maastricht to the last enlargements

1 073 views

What role has the European Parliament played at some key dates in European history? This stockshot traces the milestones of European construction since the Parliament's point of view.

Part 4: From the Treaty of Maastricht to the last enlargements
After various revisions, the Maastricht Treaty, formally the Treaty of the European Union (TEU), is eventually agreed and signed by the states in Maastricht on 7 February 1992. The Treaty enters into force on 1 November 1993. The result of separate negotiations on monetary union and political union, it leads to the creation of the European Union. Undoubtedly, the popularity of the Community is raised more by the Maastricht debate than by any previous developments in the Community's history. The new European dynamism and the continent's changing geopolitics lead to the accession of three more countries - Austria, Finland and Sweden - on 1 January 1995. The Europe of Fifteen is born. The Charter represents a reaffirmation of European democratic values and traditions concerning human rights and fundamental freedoms.
