  3. Some explanations of the Treaty of Maastricht

The Treaty of the European Union, that was signed in Maastricht in February 1992 and entered into force in November 1993, states that "This Treaty marks a new stage in the process of creating an ever closer union among the peoples of Europe?. The Treaty of Maastricht represents an attempt to reconcile the economic union with the political union, with the final objective of strengthening the European Integration. The question of the motives of this key treaty arises, as it was created during one of the most important period in the history of European Integration, the early 1990s. Indeed, Jacques Delors, who was the Commission President between 1985 and 1995, talked about an "acceleration of history". At that time, many historical events, such as the Collapse of the Soviet Union, transformed the world and the geopolitical context in an unprecedented way. These events also had an impact on the Integration of the European Community.
