I consider this topic to be very actual and significant, because nowadays the European Union is the greatest political and economic centre of the world, an intergovernmental and supranational union of 27 democratic member states. The Union is constantly pretending to be the leader in world policy, but it has resistance on the part of several Member States. Traditionally Britain is one of them. Reason of such relations lies in a number of historical, cultural, political and economic

factors. Relations with the EU for Britain are one of priority directions of policy, but at the same time the UK is craving for soverenity and independence and trying to keep influence on the political arena. That is why we can say “Britain is in the European Union, but not with it”. The purpose of my project is to examine political and economic role of the UK in Europe. I have established following problems for performance of the purpose of the project: Reasons of creation the EU and prerequisites for Britain to enter the Union History of relations Political and economic role of the UK in Europe and main problems, connected with it My work includes besides introduction, conclusion and 3 chapters. Chapter 1 describes the history the EU creation, premises of British membership

and problems connected with it. Chapter 2 examines the role of GB in the European Economic Integration basically in main spheres such as Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), European Community Budget and Monetary system. Benefits and difficulties in each branch are scrutinized as well. Chapter 3 considers political place of Britain in the Union, its influence on coming to conclusions and attitude of British government towards European Constitution. Chapter 1. History and reasons of creating the EU 1.1 A peaceful Europe (1945-1959) The historical roots of the European Union lie in the Second World War. Europeans are determined to prevent such killing and destruction ever happening again. Soon after the war, Europe is split into East and West as the 40-year-long Cold War begins. West
