An Inside View of the CAP Reform Process

The three main decision-making institutions have been the Commission, and particularly the Commissioner for Agriculture, the Council of Ministers with its rotating Presidency (and possible recourse to the European Council), and the European Parliament. This chapter identifies their respective competences and outlines the way in which they operate and interact in the bargaining process. The Treaty of Lisbon has changed these relations: in particular from 2010 it gives the European Parliament enhanced power over the CAP. The Commission is headed by a College of Commissioners, and it is its prerogative to propose new legislation. Its Directorate-General for Agriculture exercises its management role through management committees. The committees serving the Council include the Special Committee on Agriculture (SCA) and the Committee of Permanent Representatives (COREPER).
