There is not only ongoing debate about where the geographical centre is, but also on cultural and political issues and Europe's precise borders. Experience our society where norms and values are central, where the polity provides security and prosperity and thus peace,
yields the single market, runs the Erasmus+ programme, fosters the trade agenda, is working to reform the financial sector, agreed the Europe 2020 growth strategy and where
