Pan-Europa

Pan-Europa in Europe

Description of Pan-Europa

The Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union describes pan-europa in the following terms: [1] The brainchild of the inter-war idealist Count Coudenhove-Kalergi, Pan-Europawas to be one of six peace-loving political groupings within the League of Nations (the others being the British empire, Pan-America, the USSR, China and Japan). Coudenhove-Kalergi won sympathy and influence in high places, but failed to capture the mainstream of the European movement, which succumbed to the pragmatism of Jean Monnet.
