Alexander Stubb, a participant in the 1996-97 and 2000 Intergovernmental Conferences analyzes the evolution of flexible integration from the early 1970s to the present day and beyond. He focuses in the process of negotiations which led to the institutionalisation of flexibility in the Amsterdam and Nice Treaties. This book provides a valuable insider's view on historical decisionmaking in the European Union.

'...the reading of this monograph is, in my view, a must for all those who want to understand the multiple facets of flexibility from a legal point of view...[it] is an extremely interesting contribution to the understanding of the dynamics of Intergovernmental Conferences...Though short and easily readable, the book is very rich in substance and very well-documented...' - Claus D. Ehlermann, Brussels, CLM
