The Schuman Report on Europe, the State of the Union by the Robert Schuman Foundation is a unique, unequalled reference work on Europe.
Unique : it is a source of information, analysis and proposals in which the most eminent thinkers express their ideas: governance, federalism, the euro, regulation, European industry, European budget, energy, international policy, social model, a complete review of the European Union and its policies.
Unequalled: it is a practical tool with 34 unique maps, a summary of political and legal Europe, a complete range of statistics on the European economy.
This third edition is devoted to the means to implement to overcome the crisis with an exclusive interview with Jean-Claude Trichet, former President of the European Central Bank.
All 26 contributions in the in the Schuman Report on Europe, the State of the Union 2012 converge to one message: "the reasons calling on Europeans to stand together have never been as numerous as today".
