More relevant than ever, the Little Blue Book offers a novel point of view on the recent history of the European construction process by taking close look at the creation and development of the first large-scale European student network, in 1985. The pages of the book also illuminate the meandering European Community decision-making process by telling the true story of the complex adoption of ERASMUS, the first large scale European programme addressing young people, in which AEGEE-Europe played a decisive role. The book is also an original testimony on the real impact European citizens can have on the European construction process… when they know how to organise themselves as Eurocitizens.
