    Abstract

    The understanding of the European integration process has found an obstacle in the incorrect and at times equivocal use of terminology. In this sense, reference can be made to the various meanings of such terms as "variable geometry Europe", "Europe a la carte", "multiple speed Europe", etc. A possible approach to accomplishing a controlled use of the terminology consists in placing these expressions within the historical context in which they arose, thus recovering their original extent. Two-speed Europe or, according to other terms, variable geometry Europe is a solution adopted de facto to support the European integration process since its origins. We thus interpret these terms through historical analysis of developments, from the takeoff of the integration process during the 50's, through Maastricht and after.
