    La diversidad de la Unión Europea, que constituye uno de sus rasgos característicos, adquiere una dimensión de desigualdad cuando se analizan los logros de la cohesión. A pesar de que las distancias entre los Estados Miembros se han acortado, los ciudadanos no tienen el mismo acceso al Estado de Bienestar. El denominado modelo social europeo también se ha diversificado atendiendo no sólo a la trayectoria histórica de cada país, sino a la forma distinta en que se abordan los problemas viejos y nuevos de la sociedad comunitaria: envejecimiento, inmigración, globalización, medio ambiente, etc. The diversity of the European Union which is one of their characteristic features, acquires a dimension of inequality when considering the achievements of cohesion. Although the distances between member states have shortened, the citizens do not have the same access to the welfare state. The so-called European social model has also diversified looking not only at the historical performance of each country, but how different they are dealt with old and new problems in the EU society: aging, immigration, globalization, environment, etc.
