German policy on Europe
Germany in Europe
The European Union is the biggest political success story of the past 50 years. The EU is not simply a common economic area, but rather a community of shared values. Peace and prosperity, freedom and security - those are achievements cherished by all EU citizens. The project Europe will continue to offer opportunities for all.
Enlargement of the European Union
The European Union's goal is to make Europe a bastion of peace, freedom, security, political stability and prosperity. An enlarged European Union can act as a stabilizing force throughout Europe, for adopting the acquis – the entire body of EU law – enables new member states to contribute to European integration and share its benefits.
