    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. The election of a new French president could bring an end to the institutional deadlock in the EU – provided that the German EU presidency is able to strike a deal that can embrace the divergent demands of the member states. While the prevailing mood in Brussels policy circles is one of scepticism, finding a meaningful agreement should not prove impossible if negotiators can concentrate on substance and aim for a true middle ground. In the end, all must feel that their ‘red lines’ have not been trespassed, and yet there has to be real improvement in the functioning of the EU institutions and their democratic accountability.
