What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

The EU flag

In a supranational cooperation such as the EU there can be agreements that unite them and disagreements that divide them.The EU works together and has a cultural identity an example of this is celebrating holidays and having a flag.The EU unites or has a political centripetal force that lets citizens be able to vote for any representatives that are in the EU. Also they unite by using the common market because the common market makes it easier to trade by taking down tariffs or barriers. Also the EU let's you cross borders without having to change money or have a visa because most of the counties in the EU use euros .In the EU there is lots of diversity between the different countries which sometimes causes a centrifugal force.In the EU there are may differences which may cause centrifugal forces such as the west and east. In the west they have more jobs that pay more money than the east so the west might be scared of the EU taking the jobs. Another difference is the languages and cultures. The only problem with this is that the EU has to print many papers in over 20 different languages.In conclusion the different forces are centrifugal and centripetal forces that work for and against the EU. A centrifugal force is the differences such as the differences between the culture and languages among the countries. A centripetal force is the similarities such as when the countries are united in the EU by taking down tariffs so they could ship things in the EU for free.
