    The French Socialist concept of Europe has been penetrated by a profound ambivalence: historically, Europe was valued insofar as it prolonged the internationalist traditions of French socialism, but it was feared because of the dimunition of national sovereignty it implied. The tension between these two imperatives has characterised the history of the Socialist relationship to Europe. In this chapter, we shall consider first the historical relationship between French socialism and the European Community; second, the evolution of Socialist policy towards the EC during the 1980s; before, thirdly, concentrating upon the specific sphere of EC institutional reform; and finally, considering how the internal dynamics of the French Socialist party have had an impact upon the party's relationship with the EC.
