The year 2000 divides two millennia of European history. The past millennium ended with one of the longest periods of peace and prosperity for Western Europe; with transition from a totalitarian system to democracy and market economy in Central and Eastern Europe, and with a tragic period of war and instability in the Balkans. The new millennium is beginning with the promise of an integrated, free, prosperous and environmentally sustainable Europe. In fulfiling this promise, the focus will be on the region in which the REC is rooted – the nations of Central and Eastern Europe.
