AbstractEuropean integration faces a quandary. Even though the European Union is on the eve of an unprecedented expansion, politicians and scholars claim that it lacks a coherent direction, and they speculate about what the finalité politique of European integration might look like. In this article it is argued that a debate devoted to ends needs to take heed of what has been introduced in the course of the integration process, namely, supranationality as a new mode of political organisation. After a brief discussion of two prominent conceptions of supranationality, the author contends that the most promising reading of supranationality lies in conceiving of it from the perspective of anti-discrimination.
