Q&A

What forces work for or against supranational cooperation among nations?

The European Union

Within supranational cooperation, there are often centripetal forces that unite nations. The creation of a common market has been an important economic force uniting the EU. With goods move freely across borders, people have more choices in what to buy. There are no taxes that have to be paid when moving freely across borders. In the EU the members have better bargaining power as a single group. Outside of Europe, the EU works together to strengthen Europe’s part in the world. By working together the EU members have more control over world problems. For example on the issue of global warming, they all have the same say in the problem. Instead of each country having their own say. This means that they are able to work together to meet a common goal. In these ways, these centripetal forces help Europe and the EU countries to be one.
