Chair of an EPC Policy Dialogue on The implementation of the Lisbon Treaty - one year on, which took place in Brussel on 12 January 2011.
More than a year after the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, this Policy Dialogue was an occasion to provide an assessment of the implementation of the new Treaty and the functioning of the EU's new institutional architecture. A distinguished panel of experts examined the impact of the new Treaty on the overall institutional balance particularly in relation to the strengthened role of the European Parliament, the introduction of a semi-permanent President of the European Council, the changed functions of the rotating presidency, and the setting up of the European External Actions Service (EEAS).
Speakers included Bruno Angelet, Advisor on European Affairs to the Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Poul Skytte Christoffersen, Ambassador of Denmark to Belgium and former Special Advisor to High Representative Catherine Ashton on the EEAS, Richard Corbett, member of the private office of the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, and Andrew Duff, Member of the European Parliament. The event was chaired by EPC Senior Policy Analyst Janis A. Emmanouilidis.
