EU member-states are gradually coming to the idea that any future union wouldn’t be a monolithic organisation, with all members equally integrated into one common European space. The ending of the latest EU summit showed that although most European leaders aren’t pleased with the distinction, almost all understand that the only possible future EU is “a Europe on different levels” or “a variable-geometry Europe”. Behind those beautiful expressions is a simple principle… each EU country would determine how far each country integrates into the larger community, with participation or non-participation in any EU programme or entity based on how far it coincides with their particular national interests.
