    Abstract

    [Introduction]. In this paper I shall briefly outline the classical theories of integration, especially neofunctionalism, which dominated the debate about European integration from the very beginning in the 1950s until the early 1990s. Next I want to outline what I consider the most important contribution to integration theory in the last 10-15 years, namely Andrew Moravcsik’s liberal intergovernmentalism. Then I will look at some of the most important critiques of liberal intergovernmentalism, especially public choice institutionalism and sociological institutionalism. I will finish with a brief case study, asking what we can learn in theory and practice from the rise and fall of the Constitutional Treaty.
