Even before the Treaty of Maastricht was signed in 1992, European leaders were looking toward a union of nation-states held together not by force but by a common goal to promote European trade, culture, economics, and technology. It is unlikely, however, that history will recount the unification of Europe as a grand and romantic revolutionary development. It has been, and continues to be, a gradual and evolutionary integration full of criticism and ethnic-based conflicts. Many questions still must be answered. The need to strike a balance between centralization and decentralization is pressing and difficult to meet.
