    [From the Introduction]. In 1969 the six member states of the EC decided at the Hague to initiate both enlargement negotiations with the four applicants (UK, Ireland, Denmark and Norway) and the process of foreign policy cooperation known as European Political Cooperation (EPC). There has always been a certain ambiguity about this decision, which can be seen either as a determination to match enlargement - widening - with a parallel decision to deepen or as an intergovernmentalist challenge to the Community method along the lines initially proposed by De Gaulle and Fouchet in the early 1960s.
