During the past half a century or so, many arrangements for international economic integration have come into existence. The most important of these, the European Union is, in fact, an amalgamation of three separate communities: the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), established by the Treaty of Paris in 1952 and valid for 50 years; the European Economic Community (EEC), created in 1957 by the Treaty of Rome for an unlimited period; and the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM), founded by another Treaty of Rome in 1957 and also of unlimited duration.2 The EEC Treaty provided for a drastic form of integration: a common customs union, the free movement of persons and capital, and integrated policies in a number of areas, such as agriculture, transportation, research and technology.
