Within supranational cooperation, there are often centrifugal forces that divide nations. The western part of Europe is wealthier than the east part, so the EU attempts to even it out by spending large amounts of money on projects. The western part of Europe complains about so much of their money being spent outside their country. Sometimes when a country doesn’t agree with a decision made by the EU, the country decides to make a separate decision, and wants to keep their independence. This divides said country from the EU a bit, causing tension on the bond shared by the EU and the country. In order to join the EU, you have to give up some of your independence. The countries like keeping some of it, so this divides the EU. The EU is divided by many things, like culture, language, and desire for keeping their independence.
