Reforming the Council: A Work in Progress? (2003:9)

This paper describes and analyses various processes of reform currently being discussed and taking place in and around the Council and the European Council, two central institutions of the European Union. Proposed and actual changes in their structure and functioning will affect not only these institutions, but also the EU as a whole.

In researching the paper, the authors have followed the debates on the institutions taking place in and around the Convention on the Future of Europe, and have spoken with a variety of national and international actors on the subject.

The report was presented at the seminar Striking the Institutional Balance? and is a part of the research project Strategy 2004.
