Five good wishes for the future of Europe

50th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome at 25 March 2007

Statement of the CPCE Presidium

From the introduction: On 25 March 2007 the European Union celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Treaties of Rome as an important step towards the political unification of Europe. In 1957 the signatory states committed themselves to ‘laying the foundations of an ever closer union among the peoples of Europe’, to ‘ensure the economic and social progress of their countries by common action’ and ‘to preserve and strengthen peace and liberty’ (from the Preamble to the EEC treaty). The Community of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE) regards the development of the European Union as an important contribution to peace, freedom and prosperity in Europe.
