This class starts with European unification projects from the interwar's period, analyzes the first-generation European organizations (such as the Western, the Council of Europe) from which the Communitarian Europe stemmed, based on the Paris and the Rome treaties. Many crises followed by innovative relaunches builded the history of Six Europe: the failure of the EDC treaty, the British application, the Fouchet plan and the Empty chair crisis. With the 1973 enlargement begins a period characterized by the strained relationship between deepening and enlarging, by budgetary debates and adaptation to new geo-economical and geopolitical environments. With the 2004 enlargement begins a third phase, dealing with the institutional reform challenges and the continental dimension of the Union.
