    The following collection of papers examines the ratification process in each individual Member State, taking into consideration the most recent developments at the time of writing (January 2006). Furthermore, these papers discuss the position of party groups represented in the European Parliament on the Constitutional Treaty. The concise overview of the political and public debates on the Treaty, as well as the data collected on public opinion, shed light on the current state of the ratification process. The publication offers an analytical look into the constitutional moods of the 25 EU Member States and attempts to outline options for the future of the Constitutional Treaty.
