España ha participado activamente en la negociación de todos los tratados europeos: Maastrich    More..(1992), Amsterdam (1997), Niza (2001), el fallido Tratado constitucional (2004) y Lisboa (2009).

En 1995, y tras la firma tres años antes del Tratado de Maastricht, que dotaba a la Unión de una moneda común y adoptaba la denominación de Unión Europea, se acordó en Madrid la denominación de "euro" para la moneda europea. El hecho coincidió con el final de la segunda Presidencia española de turno de la Unión Europea (UE).

En 1992 y durante la Cumbre de Edimburgo, los Estados miembros instauraron el llamado Fondo de Cohesión para proyectos de medio ambiente, infraestructuras de transporte y energía en países con un nivel de renta por debajo del 90% de la media de la UE. Estos fondos, junto al resto de los fondos estructurales, han revitalizado el desarrollo regional en España, una de las principales características de su pertenencia a la UE.

España ha participado activamente en la negociación de todos los tratados posteriores: Amsterdam (1997), Niza (2001), el fallido Tratado constitucional (2004) y Lisboa (2009). Además, ha hecho aportaciones duraderas a la construcción de Europa en ámbitos tan variados como la ciudadanía de la Unión, la política de cohesión, la diversidad cultural y linguística, la cooperación judicial o la lucha contra el terrorismo.Less..
