A Good Guide to Institutional Innovations in the Treaty of Lisbon

The Center for European Policy Studies (CEPS), Egmont (Belgium’s Royal Institute of International Affairs) and the European Policy Centre (EPC) have come together to publish a second study of the institutional innovations included of the Treaty of Lisbon. The authors have identified ten issues that they explore in length. A couple of general conclusions are made:

  • The institutional system of the European Union has become more complex;
  • The European Parliament and the European Council have clearly been reinforced by the Treaty of Lisbon;
  • The Lisbon Treaty reinforces and accelerates an evolution towards increased joint management.

I recommend this publication to anyone interested in the institutional dynamics of the European Union.
