Member-States of the European Union.

In the last meeting in the English Club of our school for 2013, some students prepaired a presentation about
the Member-States of the European Union.
Member state generally is a state that is a member of a “national organisation”.  At this occasion, a member state is a country that is state of the European Union. Each state has obligations and privileges, as in a national organisation.
There are 28 member–states. At the beginning, there were 6 founding members (Belgium, France,  West Germany, Italy, Luxemburg and Netherlands). Those 6 members  founded the EU's predecessor, the European Economic Community, in 1957 and the remaining states joined in subsequent enlargements.
These 28 Member-States are:
(alphabetically, with the year each one entered EU)

  • Austria (1995)
  • Belgium (1952)
  • Bulgaria (2007)
  • Croatia (2013)
  • Cyprus (2004)
  • Czech Republic (2004)
  • Denmark (1973)
  • Estonia (2004)
