Executive Power, Contestation, and Resolution

Executive Power, Contestation, and Resolution

(p.78) 3 Executive Power, Contestation, and Resolution
The Lisbon Treaty

Paul Craig

Oxford University Press

The most divisive issues in the debates that led to the Constitutional Treaty concerned executive power, and the ‘solutions’ embodied in that Treaty were largely carried over into the Lisbon Treaty. This chapter examines the tensions concerning executive power and the way in which they were ‘resolved’ in the Lisbon Treaty, the focus being on the legal provisions and the political implications of the new regime.

Keywords:   Lisbon Treaty, Constitutional Treaty, executive power, legal provisions, new regime
