The Paneuropaean Union
In 1922 Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi published his article „Paneuropa. A proposal“. This article was the foundation of „Paneuropa Union“, the oldest organisation for the unification of Europe. The idea was based on a geopolitical approach. Europe, split up in many small states after World War I., will be dominated by world powers from outside Europe if it does not cooperate. Only a united Europe could play ist own role for example in foreign and security policy.
A second pillar of Coudenhove-Kalergis proposal was the idea of freedom: „Without freedom Europe would be a body without a soul, an artificial and fragile construction“.
With this site we want to inform you about our organisation, our history, what we do today, our proposals for a paneuropean EU, about our activities, etc.
