Show Summary Details


The most divisive issues in the debates that led to the Constitutional Treaty concerned executive power, and the ‘solutions’ embodied in that Treaty were largely carried over into the Lisbon Treaty. This chapter examines the tensions concerning executive power and the way in which they were ‘resolved’ in the Lisbon Treaty, the focus being on the legal provisions and the political implications of the new regime.
