Some Info on the Panel on Inter-Institutional Relations at the UACES Conference 31 Jan/1 Feb

The contributions to this interdisciplinary panel look at a variety of issues arising from the implementation of the new provisions in the Lisbon Treaty and the way in which these impact on inter-institutional relations in the EU. This involves a focus on the changes in the executive realm, with studies of the new European External Action Service (Caterina Carta) and of the development of executive ‘opacity’ more generally (Lars Hoffmann), as well as look at the role of national parliaments in the context of EU decision-making (Christine Neuhold and Rik de Ruiter). A further paper examines the way in which the Lisbon Treaty impacts on the capacity of the Union to adopt long-term reform programmes such as “Europe 2020” (Kenneth Armstrong).
