Abstract:Theories of European integration often perceive the EU to be a system with high barriers against reform. Change either doesn't happen at all or happens in a radical way over a short period of time. This work illustrates with an historical case study about the milk quota. The case of the milk quota shows, that through an array of different factors, barriers against reform can be overcome. The milk quota also constitutes a case of incremental change with significant impact. It also suggests "layering" as a mechanism which should be added to historical institutionalism as a theory of European integration to capture this change.
