    [From the Introduction]. The central question with which the paper is concerned is this: What is the relationship between the EC, statehood and European order in a changing (if not transformed) Europe? It could be argued that the EC itself rests fundamentally on a very specific conception of statehood and state behaviour; if this is so, then the changing nature of statehood is bound to feed into the nature, structure and operations of the Community. Equally, it could be contended that the Community is at heart an emanation of the state system, and that changes in the system are bound to have direct effects on the roles played by the Community. Finally, it could be asserted that the EC is an agent of transformation in the Europe of the 1990s, and that it is therefore in itself a source of the changes in state behaviour and the state system referred to above. Whichever position is adopted, there is no doubting the intimacy of the linkages with which we are dealing.
