Kurpas, Sebastian. (2007) The Treaty of Lisbon - How much 'Constitution' is left? An Overview of the Main Changes. CEPS Policy Brief No. 147, 11 December 2007. [Policy Paper]
[From the introduction] On 13 December European Leaders will sign the “Treaty of Lisbon amending the Treaty on European Union and the Treaty establishing the European Community”. Some commentators already take its long title to mean that it may not be quite the ‘mini-treaty’ Nicolas Sarkozy had promised, and much of the public debate on the text has focussed on the question of ‘how much constitution’ it still contains. This paper intends to provide a concise overview of the most important innovations introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon (ToL), comparing it at the same time to the abandoned Constitutional Treaty (CT).
