This paper presents an attempt to demonstrate that the concept of differentiated integration is a good solution for increasing EU heterogeneity. Hence, the analysis of differentiated integration will begin by examination of the origin of differentiation in the European construction (Chapter I). Since one of the main problems of differentiated integration is the lack of clarity about the subject and even the terminology used in theory and practice, special attention will be paid to defining categories and to giving definitions of different forms of flexible (differentiated) integration (Chapter II). With an entire title dedicated to general enabling clauses for closer (enhanced) cooperation between those Member States which are willing and able to further cooperation among themselves. The Treaty of Amsterdam has turned the exception into a constitutional principle. Since the conditions for the use of enhanced cooperation were very strict, this mechanism was the subject to the numerous amendments provided by the Nice Treaty and the Lisbon Treaty (Chapter III).
