Towards common accord? The European Union contemplates treaty change

Future of Europe / DISCUSSION PAPER
Andrew Duff

Date: 31/10/2023
Numerous events have conspired to tempt the European Union to reform the way it is governed. Present constitutional arrangements were laid down in the Treaty of Lisbon in 2007 and are long overdue for revision.

The Council remains fearful and inarticulate, divided over the content and timing of any such reform.
