    Abstract

    Almost exactly one year ago I surprised the participants of a seminar at the Harvard Law School with the following thesis: the intergovernmental conferences do not change the institutional-balance. Looking back at the budget treaties of the seventies, the Single European Act, the Maastricht and Amsterdam Treaties, this seems to be an almost frivolous statement. And yet, looking at the mandate for the last IGC formulated by the Turin European Council, you find the phrase: "... respecting the balance between the institutions ...". And at the end of the Amsterdam conference, there is the satisfied conclusion that the institutional balance has been maintained. Going back to the previous ICCs, one finds the same kind of affirmations.
