Later than the Rome Treaty 1957 there is a progress in unification of Europe. For sure Europe has learned out of the history but obviously it is coming to an end. The last step of enlargement 2004/07 was a big step forward and a real success story concerning stabilisation of Europe. In the current volatile impression, which Europe is giving through the different crises, I do not dare to imagine, what would have happened, if we would have not done this. Therefore a strategy for Europe is really asked and for sure a positioning of the continent also. More and more it is necessary to describe, what Europe has to do in the process of globalisation. In this global village, in which we are living, is Europe a very important part, but it has to make it able to act in this way. This I am really missing. Step by step concerning the financial crises the banks and the Euro are moving forward. They are not moving forward concerning politics. So fare the current crises in the different fields are in reality crises of politics and politicians. On this we need a strategy, which is really possible, because it is no alternative existing for Europe. Maybe we need more fantasy to do it, but the necessity is existing without any doubt. It is a challenge, especially for the younger generation, because on this the changes of the old continent is really depending.
