Implementing the Lisbon Treaty ‘Special Week’ coverage


27 Nov 2009


EU Priorities 2020

EurActiv, the independent media portal specialised in EU policies, will be running special coverage on Europe’s new treaty from 30 November to 4 December.

With EU leaders now having decided who their first permanent president and foreign policy representative will be, attention is now focusing on what concrete changes the treaty will bring to EU policy.

The EurActiv special week will feature interviews with prominent Brussels think tanks and analysts on what the changes will bring to EU policy-making. It will also go into the nitty-gritty of inter-institutional relations, with a particular emphasis on the European Parliament, which gains new powers under the Lisbon Treaty

The special week coverage will feature on EurActiv’s ‘EU Priorities & Opinion’ section, which is supported by Coca-Cola, IBM, Enel and Speak up Europe. The section is available free of charge in three languages at the following address: [FR] [DE

Meanwhile, EurActiv continues to lead the debate on the replacement of the Lisbon Strategy for growth and jobs, the Union’s flagship long-term policy. Please check our latest articles here:
