Europe Politics is the study of the politics of European nations and their relationships to one another. The study also involves an examination of how Europe came into being, where it is headed, and what it might be in the future. Since there are many ways to analyze Europe’s political history these days, there are dozens of different books written on the subject. In fact, if you wanted to read about all of Europe’s politics for a semester, you would need hundreds of different books on the topic.
Europe has been invaded and conquered by several powerful nations over the centuries, most notably by the Romans in the First Century. Rome was at the forefront of political systems across the ancient world and its influence can be seen today in everything from language to currency. The Roman influence can still be seen in the political system of many countries in Europe today, and has left a lasting impression on the way government is structured and funded in these countries. Today’s European Union is made up of numerous member states from all over Europe, which is led by Germany.
The political system of Europe today is considered to be stable, although there have been some recent changes to the political system in some countries. For example, in Italy, the center-right Italian government recently approved a constitutional amendment that will allow it to constitutionalize its last two decades of absolute rule. Spain, which is the former heartland of the Roman Catholic Church, has had a troubled period in recent years because of the economic crisis, and may soon experience a change in its political system. Ireland, which is the mother country of all Ireland citizens, is fighting a difficult battle to preserve its centuries old political system. Regardless of what changes may come about within these countries in the next few years, Europe as a whole will always be known as the continent of Europe.
