Striking similarities: The origins of the European Economic Community

Blake, D. ORCID: 0000-0002-2453-2090 (2020). Striking similarities: The origins of the European Economic Community. City, University of London.


A Plan for a European Economic Community was developed at the University of Berlin in 1942. There are striking similarities with the European Economic Community that was introduced in 1957 – and which became the foundation stone of the European Union. Particularly striking is the innate hostility both to liberal economic values and to democracy – a hostility that permeates the EU to this very day.
