    This paper tries to offer answers to three sets of questions within this general problematic nature: a) What kind of basic/fundamental/essential features could we identify for grasping the EC/EU? Are there reliable indicators which allow some kind of trend analysis? b) What is the impact of major institutional and procedural changes on the overall development of this polity sui generis? Do constitutional treaty revision and amendments matter? Do grand bargains on institutions, instruments and rules affect major characteristics of this process or are they peripheral? It seems obvious that relations do not only lead into one direction. Treaty reforms are reaching to prior trends-quite often they “ratify” or rubberstamp institutional evolutions which have been developed within or outside the existing treaty provisions (Christiansen and Jorgensen 1999). c) How could these results be examined in terms of general, integration related approaches? Would they support or dismiss some of the theoretical assumptions we have elaborated in our community?
