n the latest years the concept of a “two speed Europe” became a
plan in which several countries belonging to the European
Community believe. The “two speed Europe” plan is the idea that
different parts of the European Union should integrate at different
levels and pace depending on the political situation in each
individual country, most of the countries progressing with a slower
speed would be the south of Europe ones; if for some countries it
would resolve the problems of Europe, for others it would
complete the collapse of the Union.
