EU Trade Policy with the Lisbon Treaty: What will Change?

May 08 2009
Venue: Euroflat Hotel, Blvd Charlemagne 50, 1000 Brussels
Speakers: Steve WoolcocknJean-Francois BrakelandnAndreas Maurer
Time: 14:00

The Lisbon Treaty, which takes effect in early December, sets out a new institutional structure for EU trade policy. The role of the European Parliament in EU policy making will overall be strengthened, and trade policy, one of the core fields of European co-operation, will now be subject to greater parliamentary power. The legal definition of trade policy has widened and voting rules for the Council of Ministers have been amended. Investment policy is also given a more distinct role. But how will the new treaty be institutionalized, and how will the conduct of EU trade policy change as a consequence of the Parliament’s new power? 

You are cordially invited to a seminar on EU trade policy with the Lisbon Treaty. Steve Woolcock (London School of Economics), one of Europe’s leading scholars on EU trade policy, will present an analysis of the implications of the Lisbon Treaty for EU trade policy. Jean-Francois Brakeland and Andreas Maurer , senior officials in the European Commission and the European Parliament respectively, will comment. 

RSVP by December 7 to info@ecipe.org
