No boundaries (Letter to the Editor of The Guardian)
20 January 2009
The EU's capacity to function, despite the national differences depicted in the Czech artist David Cerny's model, is a remarkable achievement (Thus spoke Entropa: the EU defined in an Airfix model, 17 January). The EU may not be perfect, but it is a role model for regional cooperation. Barack Obama recognises the achievement of the EU - in a speech last year, he said: "The people of Europe have formed a union of promise and prosperity." Cerny has unintentionally focused the spotlight on the EU's ability to bring together sovereign nation states to face common challenges.
