Abstract

The Treaty on a Constitution for Europe in a version presented by d’Estaing is not only a result of a legal and institutional aspect of deeper European integration but also a result of an axiological compromise. After the Second World War, the process of economic integration, development of peace and wide social-economic integration between states and societies of European Communities have brought the need for seeking a common foundation of the European axiology. If Europe wants to be the main and real actor in the world politics, it is necessary to understand what is the foundation of our culture and what role in the world Europe wants to play.

Keywords: Europe, values, constitution
