The Treaty of Lisbon

Centre for European Policy Studies

This book examines the institutional innovations being introduced into the European Union as a result of 2009's Treaty of Lisbon. After examining the major changes taking place within the EU's major institutions—the European Council, European Parliament, and the European Commission—the authors look at the innovations brought by the treaty, such as the Presidency "triangle," the citizen's initiative, and the potentially enhanced role for national parliaments to play at the EU level. Two issues that were not particularly pressing at the time of the treaty's negotiation but which now exert a strong influence over the ability of the EU to realize its ambitions are carefully scrutinized: climate change and the global financial crisis.The book is a collective work of a team of researchers from Brussels-based research institutes CEPS, EGMONT (Belgium's Royal Institute of International Affairs), and the European Policy Centre (EPC).Contributors include Piotr Maciej Kaczynski and Peadar ó Broin (CEPS); Franklin Dehousse, Philippe de Schoutheete, Tinne Heremans, Jacques Keller, Guy Milton, and Nick Witney (EGMONT); and Janis Emmanouilidis, Antonio Missiroli, and Corina Stratulat (EPC).

The European Union in the 21st Century

Stefano Micossi

The contributors to this book are all members of EuropEos, a multidisciplinary group of jurists, economists, political scientists, and journalists in an ongoing forum discussing European institutional issues. The essays analyze emerging shifts in common policies, institutional settings, and legitimization, sketching out possible scenarios for the European Union of the 21st century. They are grouped into three sections, devoted to economics and consensus, international projection of the Union, and the institutional framework. Even after the major organizational reforms introduced to the EU by the new Treaty of Lisbon, which came into force in December 2009, Europe appears to remain an entity in flux, in search of its ultimate destiny.In line with the very essence of EuropEos, the views collected in this volume are sometimes at odds in their specific conclusions, but they stem from a common commitment to the European construction.

Last Call for Lisbon?

Magnus Lemmel

This volume presents the arguments and views expressed in CEPS task force meetings on electronic communications that took place between September 2005 and May 2006. Participants included industry stakeholders, distinguished scholars, national regulators, and representatives of the European Commission and the European Parliament. The task force issued policy recommendations to the European Commission for a review of the EU regulatory framework on e-communications scheduled for late 2006. The book includes suggestions on how to promote investment in next-generation networks and promote broadband takeup. It makes recommendations on the transition from ex ante regulation to ex post competition policy. The study concludes with an analysis of the options for adapting the framework to technological convergence and to the changed competitive landscape in the European e-communications sector.
