EPC Post-Summit Analysis

Brussels 11/2010



The political atmosphere ahead of the European Council on 28-29 October had been poisoned by the Franco-German Deauville declaration. But although the Summit was far from plain sailing, EU leaders in the end agreed on a number of key issues related to the reform of European economic governance. However, as this EPC analysis explains, there are still many uncertainties and open questions related in particular to the establishment of a new permanent crisis mechanism and the 'necessity' to change EU Treaties.

The EPC Post-Summit-Analysis was published on 2 November 2010 and can also be found on the EPC website, see here.
