More specifically I am most grateful to the European University Institute, and in particular to its then Principal, M Emile Noel, for having elected me a Jean Monnet Fellow for 1992–3 and then for having made it possible to hold the conference which has spawned this book. I am also grateful to the Commission of the European Communities for providing supplementary funds which enabled us to expand the range of participants in the conference. Professor Roger Morgan of the Department of Social and Political Sciences (and in 1993 Director of the European Policy Unit) has provided enthusiastic and knowledgeable support throughout which I very much appreciate.

The difficulty the analyst faces in describing such a hybrid had thus been sharply increased in the early 1990s by rapid changes in the international environment and by changes in its institutional structures which followed from the 1991 IGC.
