Council of the EU

From Crisis, Opportunity: Europe's Story

1,132 views 2 months ago
Born from the ashes of war, the European Union project has grown despite and because of crises, like the global financial meltdown.
This video marks the centenary of the First World War, as conflict in Ukraine looms large, and a decade since the EU's biggest-ever enlargement. It shows the Union's leaders still striving toward the opportunities of a common future; always bearing in mind national political concerns and never forgetting the lessons of the past.
It contains interviews with the first-ever President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, the President of Lithuania, and senior EU officials.
