What is the European Union?
Having started with just six members, the European Union (EU) now has 28 and covers a large portion of the European continent. Its form has changed and evolved over the decades to accommodate numerous treaties and shifts in geographical boundaries and social, economic, political and military matters. The first idea of a consolidated Europe appeared in the aftermath of World War 2, which left large areas of Europe devastated.
