The European Union is the greatest political success story of the post-war period, as such Europe is a community of values - not just a common economic space.  Peace and freedom, prospertity and security are achievements appreciated by all citizens of the EU. In 2012 the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the European Union and therefore additionally to all of its citizens.   

At the municipal level, the European Union is becoming increasingly important, for example, through European legislation that either directly or indirectly affects the municipalities or through the usage of European funding programs.
