During September 2006, the BBC has been offering a download and podcast trial of a four-part series about the founding and growth of the European Union: Forging the Union. Part Four – Ever Larger Union – is available today.
BBC NEWS also offers an online section entitled Inside Europe, which provides current news about the European Union. This week the site features news about the January 2007 admission of Romania and Bulgaria to the EU and about continuing problems concerning Turkey’s bid to join. The “Features, Views, and Analysis” portion of Inside Europe links to background information about EU institutions, history, milestones, and candidate countries.
The official website of the European Union – Europa – is available in all official EU languages. It contains a wealth of information from EU institutions: the Commission, Council, Parliament, and Court of Justice.
The website of the Delegation of the European Commission to the United States includes news concerning the EU, information about EU-US relations, The European Union: A Guide for Americans, and a useful A-Z Index of EU websites.
