    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. My argument is divided into four parts. Firstly, I will introduce crisis as an engine of progress in European integration history and the concept of challenge and response as an explicatory variable. Secondly, I will offer some thoughts about a possible periodization of European integration history as far as the role and effect of the most defining crises and opportunities of integration are concerned. Thirdly, I will allude to some more examples of crises in integration pertinent to the comprehensive nature of my argument. Finally, I will briefly look into the interconnectedness between European integration crises and adaptation periods in transatlantic relations.
