    This paper argues that flexible integration may even strengthen and promote the deepening of the Union. In so doing, it categorizes the theories of flexible integration and analyzes how the current Treaty of the European Union deals with the issue of flexibility. Then, focusing on the case of institutional development for European space collaboration-a European institution outside of the EU-it discusses the successful implementation of flexible institutions. The main argument of this paper is that the institutions of European integration have to be able to accommodate different interests and objectives among member states. Flexibility has to focus on the political will rather than the capacity of the members. The current Treaty arrangement for flexibility is not sufficient to accommodate the differences, and, therefore, we shall learn from the lessons of European space collaboration.
