The Lisbon Treaty and the balance of power between EU institutions (2008:7epa)


This analysis describes how the relations of power between the EU institutions are affected by the Lisbon Treaty.

It seems that there will be a slight weakening of the Minister Council, on behalf of the European Council, while the Commission's role changes less than what the Convention first proposed in its draft for a new constitution. The Parliament's influence increases by the Treaty on several different areas, especially in changes in treaties, within legislation and budgeting.

The analysis is in Swedish and is a part of the research project The constitutional development of the European Union.
