* This paper is to be published in G. de Burca and J. Scott (eds), The Changing Constitution of the EU:: From Uniformity to Flexibility (Hart Publishing, 2000). The book grew out of a seminar at the European University Institute in Florence organised by the editors. I would like to convey my appreciation to audiences at Pace University, New York and King's College, London, as well as to the participants in the Florence seminar, for their verbal and written comments on earlier versions of this paper.
