This article argues that a number of nongovernmental scientific organizations formed in Europe since World War II constitute a scientific community largely independent of national political authority. Examples include the European Organization for Nuclear Research, the European Space Agency, and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory. Such organizations increasingly serve to move European nations beyond past conflicts and contribute to political unification. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
