Europe is in a financial crisis. The economy and national societies, as well as the European Union integration structure are suffering the impact. However, there is a need to examine some selected issues and outline some possible outcomes. Finally, a European Union in transition has the parallel effect on the general state of regional integration world-¬‐wide, especially in the Americas.
