One area in which the EU has not succeeded is getting a constitution for political union approved. Nevertheless, the absence of trade barriers, ability for citizens to cross borders to live and work, and the enforcement of monetary and fiscal policy has greatly benefited the member countries.

The only major European countries not to join EU are Norway and Switzerland, and certain former Soviet Union countries (Russia, Belarus and Ukraiune) which have not been invited. Turkey, Macedonia and Croatia are currently awaiting entry.
