Mission Statement:
The European Union is based on the rule of law and democracy. It is neither a new State replacing existing ones nor is it comparable to other international organisations. Its Member States delegate sovereignty to common institutions representing the interests of the Union as a whole on questions of joint interest. All decisions and procedures are derived from the basic treaties ratified by the Member States. Principal objectives of the Union are: Establish European citizenship (Fundamental rights; Freedom of movement; Civil and political rights); Ensure freedom, security and justice (Cooperation in the field of Justice and Home Affairs); Promote economic and social progress (Single market; Euro, the common currency; Job creation; Regional development; Environmental protection); Assert Europe's role in the world (Common foreign and security; The European Union in the world).
