Show Summary Details


When adopting the Fischler reforms in June 2003, member states agreed that a second phase would soon follow, to embrace the so-called Mediterranean products: olive oil, tobacco, and cotton. But the reform agenda, extending the remit of the Single Payment Scheme, also spread to sugar, fruit and vegetables, and wine. In 2008, Mariann Fischer Boel, the then Commissioner for Agriculture, oversaw a further ‘reform’ package, known as the Health Check. As in earlier chapters, the factors that motivated the proposal, and influenced and determined the final outcome, are examined. This chapter closes with a brief overview of the emerging EU debate over the future shape, and funding, of the CAP after 2013.
