    Abstract

    Most of the media attention given to the ratification process of the Lisbon Treaty in the Czech Republic has been devoted to the antics of the President, Václav Klaus. The process is being delayed, however, not only by the President’s reservations and requests for a Czech (quasi)opt-out from the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, but also by the pending review of the Treaty by the Czech Constitutional Court (CCC), which is looking into the Lisbon Treaty for the second time; having delivered its first decision in autumn 2008. In this CEPS Policy Brief, Ivo Slosarcik a Czech constitutional law specialist and Jean Monnet Chair in European Law at Charles University in Prague, reviews the legal state of affairs within the CCC and outlines possible scenarios for future developments.
