    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. European Union has been the theoretical goal of the Europcan Community (EC) since its conception. For many, the intention was that it remained a theoretical goal to be dreamed of but never achieved. The Treaty of Rome, signed in 1957, called for an "ever closer union among the peoples of Europe", yet the first two decades after its signing saw little in the way of progress towards union. Indeed General de Gaulle's opposition to majority voting in the Council and ringing endorsement of a 'Europe des parties' in 1966 was a serious reversion to intergovernmentalism. Depressed by years of slide and stagnation Europe's leaders attempted in the early '80s to kick-start the Community into a new life. The Stuttgart Declaration, signed by the Heads of Governments at their summit there in June 1983, resolved to "create a United Europe" and confirmed "their commitment to ever closer union amongst the peoples and Member States of the European Community".
