Recently separatist movements grow up all across Europe, the economical differences between the European countries increased, the foreign politics aren’t common for all the countries, in a period in witch Europe should consolidate his union new obstacles and challenges appear. 

In 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. 

The Europe without the south would be like a castaway that lost his memory. The ideas and the reasons why Europe get united are included in the remote and more recent past of the countries from the South of Europe.
