This paper was written in early March 2007 for a conference on the European Constitutional Treaty held on 15-16 April 2007 in Harbin, China. It was developed within the project "The Impact of EU Enlargement on European Integration and the Global Political Economy" that the C·A·P jointly conducts with the Centre for European Studies at the Renmin University of China. This project is supported by the European Commission in the framework of the EU-China European Studies Centres Programme.

The paper analyses and evaluates the alternative proposals for the entry into force of the Constitutional Treaty. The author opts for a Treaty Amending the Treaty of Nice thereby transferring the core of the constitutional innovations into the existing primary law. Beyond an amendment of the current Treaties the way out of the current constitutional crisis requires also the definition of a new raison d¹être for the future EU on the basis of a new grand project.
